Anzac the joey was rescued in the Macedon Ranges and was placed with Peggy the wombat after keepers sensed he was missing his mother. The pair hit it off so well they now sleep together in a specially-made pouch.

Worker Lisa Milligan said the unlikely couple are comforted by each other's movements and heartbeat.
