Most young babies form an inseparable bond with a cuddly toy they love to take wherever they go. But one 14-month old toddler has formed an unlikely attachment to a live kangaroo. Alia Heckathorn from Northern Virginia in the United States, was first introduced to the animal called Boomeroo when she was just a few days old.
The kangaroo is being cared for by Alia's parents Julia and Jason Heckathorn with the creature being treated as an educational animal =. And ever since, the kangaroo and the baby have formed an inseparable bond and seem to do everything together from playing in the garden to eating and even dressing like each other.
Julia Heckathorn's children's book series "Search for the Hidden Clover" and her rare educational animals have been featured at such places as NBC’s Today Show, People Magazine, The Washington Post, Voice of America, and The front page of the London Times. She travels the world to educate with her books, conservation stories and live animals.
