THIS JUST IN: Wallaby Sucks Thumb

As if the other perks of being a baby wallaby weren’t enough (pouch = free room & board + transportation), they come with a built-in pacifier. Or at least this one does.



  1. awwww… so friendly… 😉

  2. Ridiculous!! >.<

  3. More like sucking his big toe, no?

  4. I was gonna say, looks more like some kind of dewclaw than “thumb”… still, super cute!


  6. There’s also the end of the tail, once the toes get all soggy. :mrgreen:

  7. Lookit the feets!! And the earses! I wish to nibble them all.

    I’ve always thought, since watching my own kids with their thumbs and pacies, that if we could harness the amount of energy that goes into the sucking of said thumbs and pacies, we could completely free ourselves of our oil dependency. And now it looks like the wallabies can help us with that! Yay Baby Wallaby!

  9. awwwww, he looks so *pensive*!

    we raised a pair of joeys – they sucked their middle ‘fingers’ on their front paws like a baby would. It got so bad they sucked all the fur off their paws, and we had to make them wear little mittens until the fur grew back.
