Rescued Joey in the Lab

Alchemist is away on his travels again. He is in the far north of Western Australia, working in a lab on a mine site. He always sees a variety of wildlife while driving, but today it came indoors to say hello. This Joey was rescued when his mother died and he was still in her pouch. He is carried around all day by volunteers in this fetching home made pouch, until he is ready to be returned to the wild.

He allowed Alchemist to take two images using the camera on his phone, then Joey pulled the pouch over his head and hid, declining to issue any comment to the paparazzi.
