This is the moment a 6-month-old baby koala named Phantom stayed by her mother’s side as she underwent life-saving surgery.
A mother koala named Lizzie suffered a collapsed lung and facial injury after being hit by a car in Australia.
Fortunately, the Ghost was unharmed, and since he was very young, the staff decided it was best to leave him with his mother.
The ghost perched on her mother’s neck, constantly hugging her, and it looks like her hugs did their job.
A baby koala hugs its unconscious mother during a life-saving operation.
The ghost is with Lizzie during her procedures and exams so that neither mother nor child will be stressed.
Likewise, the Ghost is in a «pocket» during the weigh-in so it feels safe and protected away from its mother.
It’s very touching and sweet!
