Zoo keepers hand rear baby kangaroo
An unexpected new arrival at a zoo in Germany is being hand reared by keepers after being abandoned by her mother.
Tiny 'Sabrina' was discovered lying in the grass in the kangaroo enclosure at the Serengeti-Park in Hodenhagen.
Keepers were not aware that her mum 'Urmel' was even pregnant.
The appearance of Sabrina came just a few days after Urmel attempted to escape from her enclosure and keepers believe the stress caused her to abandon her baby out of the pouch.
The hairless joey is now being cared for by keepers.
It is thought that she emerged from her mother's pouch three months early and, as such, must be constantly carried close to the body or wrapped up in blanket to keep warm.
The cute 9.8inch tall critter, who weighs just half a pound, is also being fed with special milk five times a day.
