“I won’t leave you mommy.”
Lizzie and Phantom are currently recovering in an outdoor wing within Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital. They are evolving very well and while Phantom is curious about his new environment and loves exploring it, his mother rests.
The love between a mother and her children is the strongest power on earth. Animal mothers are attached and devoted to their children in the same way as humans. Therefore, regardless of the species to which they belong, a mother will always be a mother, ready to sacrifice everything for the welfare of her children.
Two Australian koalas prove this to be the purest of realities.
Two weeks ago, Lizzie and her son, Phantom, were hit by a car. After the accident, they were quickly transferred to Australia’s Zoo Wildlife Hospital. Fortunately, the six-month-old baby was not injured, but his mother had to undergo surgery as her lungs collapsed.
During the procedure, the baby was unwilling to leave her mother’s side and clung to her. The vet realized that it would be better if they clung to each other and provided comfort because separating them could traumatize them and make them anxious.
Thanks to the doctors and the warmth of Phantom’s hugs, the surgery went well.
