Lizzy the koala and her 6-month old joey Phantom were hit by a car on Warrego Highway, in Queensland Australia last week.  She suffered facial damage and a punctured lung.  Miraculously her little joey was unharmed, but veterinary surgeons couldn’t get her baby to let go, so they decided to perform lifesaving surgery with the baby still holding on.

Lizzy has made a full recovery while staying at the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital founded by Crocodile Hunter Steve IrwinPhantom, is still holding on!
