Orphaned baby kangaroo Trying to hop for the first time

At just a half year old, a stranded child kangaroo named Bradley invests the vast majority of his energy concealed in a pillowcase that fills in as a substitute for his mom's pocket.

Bradley is all over the place for a couple of minutes daily — like the minute you find in this totally beguiling video, which his guardians say is the little person's first time endeavoring to jump.

Bradley's mom kicked the bucket when she was hit by an auto. So now the joey lives on a 188-section of land kangaroo asylum, established in 2005, in focal Australia.


"Bradley survived in his mum's pouch," Tahnee Passmore-Barns of The Kangaroo Sanctuary in Alice Springs told TODAY by email. "We rescued him and will raise him."

The haven takes in "many" stranded joeys like Bradley consistently, Passmore-Barns said.

Bradley's admirers can help by going by the asylum for a guided dusk visit and giving on the haven's site.

"Or helping out at their own local wildlife shelter or animal shelter," Passmore-Barns said. "Our motto is animals come first."
