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, where it was discovered she had these twins in her pouch.
First photo: Tiny koala being fed with syringe … sooo tiny!
Followed by a pictorial chronology of their growth…

Thanks for saving my life!
Taking care of others is a great way to forget about our own problems and difficulties!
