If this doesn't melt your heart, congratulations, you're no longer human. Interspecies friendships are always adorable, and pics like these become doubly sweet when the animals are providing one another with some support. This orphaned kangaroo Anzac and orphaned wombat Peggy kept each other company at the Wild about Wildlife Rescue Center in Kilmore, Victoria.

Anzac especially enjoys spending his time with another joey, Poppy, as well as with Peggy, the wombat. Wild About Wildlife explains on its Facebook page that Peggy has been at the shelter for just a few weeks and the carers are still looking for a partner for her.
