Baby Koala Bear Twins Road to Survival and the Amazing Progress
When a friend sent me this story about the twin Koala Bears that lost their mother, I immediately wanted to share it with all of you. Years ago, when my dad and I were invited on special tour of the Sidney Zoo, I was fortunate to hold one of the baby Koala Bears at the Zoo. If you have never held a Koala Bear it is hard to imagine how soft and beautiful they are.
It is not common for a Koala to bear twins, and regrettably in this instance the mom 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 twins in her pouch.
