AN orphaned baby wallaby is busy settling into her new home - which comes in the shape of a rucksack.

Tiny Tilly is being hand-reared by keepers at Whipsnade Zoo after she was found out of her mum’s pouch a month ago.

The seven-month-old is being looked after by keeper Jo Shirley who carries her around in a substitute pouch made from a rucksack wherever she goes.
