Ears a pair of unlikely little friends�

Orphaned kangaroo Anzac and wombat Peggy have become best pals after meeting at a wildlife rescue centre.

They share a pouch together at the Wildlife Kilmore Rescue Centre near Melbourne, Australia.

At just over five months old, Anzac was brought to the centre after being rescued in the Macedon Ranges.

Missing his mum, Anzac was placed with wombat Peggy and the two now sleep together.

Worker Lisa Milligan said the unlikely friends are comforted by each other�s movement and heartbeat.

She said: �There are lots of baby animals about at the moment, and they are orphaned for a range of reasons�.

One of the reasons the lively duo get on so well is their similar personalities - with Anzac described as very social while Peggy is boisterous and cheeky.
