Celebrating the day together were the kangaroo mob made up of the female fab five Dot, Dusk, Nutmeg, Kirby and Julie. These girls enjoyed tucking in to heart shaped sweet potato chunks and some corn.

Elsewhere sugar glider BFFs Popcorn, Kandii and Kernel raised a toast at their own private dinner party with fruit and nectar aplenty. Finally in Tassie Devil's Den Bub and Dharra shared a meaty meal.

“Some of the animals here at the zoo are social animals and it’s incredibly important for them to have those relationships,” said Marina Axia, WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo ZooKeeper. “Kangaroos for example travel in mobs and our girls here have created this own mob. Sugar gliders cuddle up together for comfort and safety and although Tassie Devils are solitary, our girls have surprised us by resting close by and sharing meals.”


“We thought we’d celebrate these beautiful friendships with a treat or two on Galentine’s Day and take this opportunity educate guests on unique bonds, especially among females in the animal kingdom,” she added.
