Alex Fasching has raised Jack the Wallaby since he was a little joey.

But it wasn’t until recently his friend Amanda Monger gave Jack his own Instagram account.

Over the past 5 months alone, Jack has earned over 21,000 thousand followers from all over the world.

“It’s become a hobby for Amanda and I to post the pictures and now, like every day, we try to get new stuff,” Fasching told News 2.

“She’s constantly buying him new outfits and stuff and coming over, but like any pet, he requires a lot of attention,” he added.

Fasching said while Jack loves fruits and vegetables, he spends a lot of time hopping around the yard eating grass.

Jack the Wallaby also gets to hit the town every now and then to go on walks or to local restaurants.
