Baby Koala Refuses To Leave His Mom During Surgery
It’s an image that could melt the coldest of hearts. Phantom the baby koala, or joey, clings to his mother while she undergoes surgery at the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital in Queensland, Australia.
In a Facebook post on June 9 Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors explained that Phantom and his mother Lizzy were hit by a car west of Brisbane. While Phantom emerged from the ordeal unscathed, Lizzy underwent treatment for face trauma and a collapsed lung.
