Baby kangaroo adopted after mum's death

Baby kangaroo Khya is being raised by a vet and zookeeper at Guadalajara Zoo after her mother died as a result of heart problems three months ago. The eight-month-old joey, a term used for infant kangaroos, has a human mother, Alma Ortega, who is using an artificial pouch to help the youngster complete post-natal development. The zoo hopes that one-day Khya will be able to join the rest of the mob of red kangaroos.
