Baby Koalas saved:

Koala twins

It is not common for a Koala to bear twins . . .
And regrettably in this instance the Mum was struck
and killed by a passing car.
Fortunately, the driver stopped and took the mother
to the local vet, not knowing she was dead . . ..
The vet discovered the dead Koala had twins in her pouch.
The first photo is of one of the tiny koalas being fed
with a syringe… Sooo tiny!

Followed by a pictorial chronology of their growth…image001108image002610image00586 image00893

Thanks for saving my life!

Thanks for saving my life!

Its so nice to see a story that has a happy ending
in these troubled times that we live in.

Taking care of others is a great way
to forget about our own problems and difficulties!

    How gorgeous are they! Such a funny little thing in that second photo. It is sad about their mother, but maybe they both would not have lived. Lucky a mother koala has two teats.
    I loved the photos Barbara, especially the nose rubbing one. Cute.:)
