Parent-child relationships are undoubtedly one of the purest and most sincere relationships to ever exist. Most of the time, they are characterized by unconditional love and support for each other. However, such incredible relationships aren’t limited to the human world. In the animal world too, such deep and genuine bonds exist. Isn’t that incredible? So, if you love the beauty of relationships in the animal world, this wholesome story is for you. It is about a baby koala who kept hugging his mother during life-saving surgery.
This loving baby koala named Phantom is just 6 months old. Phantom and his mother Lizzy came across a car accident on the Warrego Highway near Coominya, Australia. Fortunately, little Phantom was unharmed. However, Lizzy was injured and suffered a lung collapse and facial trauma. Lizzy had to undergo surgery at the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital, which has treated over 58,000 native wildlife patients. At present, both koalas are recovering here. As claimed by the hospital staff, throughout the entire surgery, the baby koala stayed by his mom’s side. He kept hugging her and never left her alone.
The hospital staff adds that Phantom and Lizzy are never separated during check-ups as this helps them to avoid getting stressed out. Also, to make sure that Phantom feels protected while away from Lizzy, he is kept in a pouch. Luckily, at the moment, Lizzy is recovering well and is expected to fully recover.
