Animal Hospital's Tiniest Patient Stays Cozy In A Little Pouch
Even the littlest of living things is very much worth saving - and this tiny creature is certainly no exception.
Staff at the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital recently came to the rescue of one of the smallest patients imaginable - a baby feathertail glider they've named Boop.
Weighing in at less than 1 gram, lighter than a paper clip, the wee marsupial became separated from her mother at far too young an age to care for herself. Fortunately, she's in good hands now, resting comfortably inside a little knit pouch.
"After falling from her mother's pouch, Boop luckily escaped any injury and will now receive round-the-clock care by a specialized wildlife carer until she is ready to return to the wild," hospital staff wrote online. "Isn't she precious!"
