Baby Koala Hugs Mom During Surgery After Getting Hit By A Car (PHOTO)
A baby koala named Phantom refused to let go of his mom Lizzy who had surgery after they were hit by a car on the Warrego Highway in Australia.
Lizzy suffered a collapsed lung and facial trauma according to ABC News. Phantom was unharmed.
“Phantom is with Lizzy during her procedures and check ups to ensure neither mum nor bub get stressed out,” the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital said. “Similarly, Phantom is in a ‘pouch’ during weighing to ensure he feels safe and protected while away from mum.”
Lizzy is currently in recovery and doing well, the hospital said.
