Koala Baby Clings To His Mother While She Has Life-Saving Surgery
Leave it to a baby koala named, “Phantom,” to be the best smile therapy you will find today.
He certainly was the magic potion for his mum who had to undergo surgery at the Australia Zoo.
The Courier Mail newspaper reports the mother and her 6-month-old baby were hit by a car along an Australian highway. Baby Phantom was okay, but mother Lizzie had significant injuries including a collapsed lung.
Veterinarians knew that mama would need surgery.
They figured it would be best for both if baby was allowed to stay with his mother during the procedure.
The positive outcome shows those are some brilliant vets.
