When Lizzie and her joey, Phantom, were hit by a car, they were rushed to the Australia Zoo Wildlife Center. Little Phantom escaped the accident unscathed, but Lizzie had to be treated for multiple fractures and a collapsed lung. She needed emergency surgery, but her baby refused to leave her side. The doctors decided that trying to separate this devoted baby from his loving mama koala would be too stressful for them both, and made the unprecedented decision to allow Phantom to remain in his mother's arms while she was treated. They say that love is the best medicine, and these two may be the living proof! Both koalas are doing well, gaining weight--and, of course cuddling like there's no tomorrow! Check out the entire, heart-warming story in the video below!
