Remember Anzac the joey and Peggy the wombat, the marsupial orphans who were rescued and became besties?

Now they've got a third lil pal -- meet Cupcake the swamp wallaby, who like her pals, was orphaned when a car accident took mom.

The trio, who live at Australia's Wildabout Wildlife Rescue Center, all are about 4 to 5 months old.

Did you know that Wombats, unlike most marsupials, have backwards-facing pouches? This is because mommy Wombats like to dig, and having a backwards pouch protects the baby from dirt and rocks.
