Animal pictures of the week

From The telegraph UK animal pictures of the week

A baby wombat has made a full recovery after being found in the pouch of her dead mothers body. After noticing the animal at the side of the road, a quick thinking passerby decided to check if the poor creature was carrying any offspring. Incredibly, despite its mother being struck by a car, the teeny critter was found shivering inside its pouch, still suckling at its mother teat. After an urgent phone call from a passerby to the local wildlife helpline, voluntary animal carer, Kim Hunter, 48 came to the rescue of the baby wombat and took it home.A baby wombat has made a full recovery after being found in the pouch of her dead mother’s body.
