Sassy kangaroo joey 'Roo-Paul' takes Australian reptile park by storm

Kangaroo joey Roo-Paul has taken the Australian Reptile Park by storm with his playful attitude and energy.

Footage from the Somersby-based park shows the joey playing with Erica Danae, the keeper who hand raised him and took him home every evening. “Roo-Paul is the light of my life! Not only is he a little character as his name permits, but he is a great ambassador for road safety and kangaroos,” said Danae. The young kangaroo was found in his mother’s pouch after she had been hit.

The roo, who is named after famous drag queen RuPaul, is much loved by zoo staff and the online community after the video of him was posted on the park's Facebook page.
