We Officially Found The Cutest Thing On The Internet: A Baby Kangaroo Sanctuary

There's stiff competition for the title of "cutest thing on the Internet." This cat petting a lamb and these stoned sloths are top contenders, to name a few. But the Instagram account for The Kangaroo Sanctuary in Alice Springs, Australia just might take the cake. At the sanctuary, Chris 'Brolga' Barnes takes in orphaned kangaroos, many of whose parents have been hit by cars. The center also includes a kangaroo hospital for rescued wildlife with injuries. You can even visit to hold a joey yourself, according to the sanctuary's website. Really, though, it just seems like a thinly veiled plot to take over the world while we're all distracted by adorable animals. The kangaroos in the photos look surprisingly human-like.

It's a cold morning in Alice Springs so I put Madeleine and Sebastian under my jacket to keep warm and took a selfie of us. ?
