Nice to meet Roo! Marsupial fooled by kid's kangaroo onesie

Nice to meet Roo! This is the heartwarming moment a curious kangaroo thought it had come face-to-face with a fellow furry friend - but was fooled by a onesie.

Four-year-old Olivia Rayner was taken to Zoodoo wildlife park in Tasmania, Australia by her family - and decided to go dressed as one of the kangaroos.

And when the Tasmanian Forester Kangaroo hopped over to check out Olivia's fake 'joey', mum Jen snapped the meeting between the two.

Jen said: "The kangaroo was extremely curious and perhaps confused."We thought it was very cute to watch this bizarre encounter."

As the Roos at the park are tame, brave Olivia - and her little friend - were in no danger as the marsupial skipped over to say 'g'day'.

Jen added: "Olivia was just as fascinated by the kangaroo as the kangaroo was with her.

"We were also amazed by how tame the kangaroos were at this particular wildlife park.

"We would never consider going up to a kangaroo of that size in the wild, however these particular kangaroos had been hand raised since birth and visitors were encouraged to go in to hand-feed them."
