Pucker up! This adorable footage shows a Joey smothering its rescuer with kisses, and it shows no sign of stopping!
Venus, the 11-month-old, kangaroo was rescued from her mother who had been shot dead and was brought ot the Wild 2 Free Kangaroo Sanctuary.
And it seems that she’s very thankful for being saved – as this footage shows her showering one of her rescue workers, Maddy, with kisses.
The footage was taken at the sanctuary which is situated near Batemans Bay, Australia.
Laurae Harvey, C/O of the Sanctuary, said: “Venus likes to kiss all of us – not many of them do this and it’s usually a one-off thing, but Venus is an exception to the rule.
“She kisses us and the volunteers and will do so at any opportunity.
“This time was particularly cute as she was reaching up and grabbing Maddy with her paws and continued to do so for ten minutes.
“Venus was initially rescued from her mother who had been illegally shot.
“A passer-by noticed a wedge-tailed eagle sitting on the dead mother and discovered Venus was in her pouch – Venus almost became dinner for the eagle!”
