Small furry animal update

After Sunday's zoo visit, something was still puzzling me, so I sent this e-mail to the Toronto Zoo:
My friends and I visited the zoo yesterday. In the Australasia Pavilion, we noticed a large rabbit in the wallaby enclosure. We were curious: What was it doing there? Was it a wild rabbit that somehow got in from outside?
Today I received this helpful reply from Maria Franke, Curator of Mammals:
Our swamp wallaby came to us from another institution and he was being hand raised. When we received him, we introduced him to this rabbit so that he would have a companion. They hit it off and are frequently seen grooming each other and enjoying each other's company.
HOW CUTE IS THAT?
