An orphaned wallaby is using a drawstring bag at the end of her zookeeper's bed as a pouch to sleep in after her mother died.<br />
Four-month-old Skye, who likes to eat dandelions, cucumber and bananas, loves the makeshift pouch, which is even lined with some of her mum's fur.<br />
The young female marsupial goes to work every morning with keeper Donna Liversedge who provides the youngster with round the clock care.<br />
Skye, who is being taught to get in and out of the bag independently, needs to be fed lactose-free cow's milk every four hours.<br />
