Leah the baby wombat was rescued from the side of the road after her mother was killed by a car in a country Victoria. She weighed in at 300 grams, required bottle feeding every three hours, and has now fully recovered.
Excited by her success, her carers posted a photo of Leah online:
Nek minit – internet sensation.
For some reason (no doubt her glorious face), Leah’s smiling photo has gone massively viral. Her picture has become the popular meme of the moment, being photoshopped into anything and everything.
Her face has now appeared in countless classic movie posters and made guest appearances on all the major US talk shows.
Leah is officially a star.
