"Skipping" into our hearts

by Creation Museum on March 13, 2009

The newest addition to the Creation Museum Petting Zoo was introduced to staff members this week. Skippy is a 5 month-old Bennett’s Wallaby (you might remember our earlier news story about Skippy’s brother, Wally). Needless to say, the little fella has 'skipped' right into our hearts!


When Skippy was born, he was about the size of a lima bean. He’s now grown to a whopping 2 lbs! He will be hand fed a special marsupial milk formula for the next 2 months or so before joining Wally full time in the petting zoo.
