Adorable Injured Koala Recovers

Yes, we’re suckers for baby animals just like you are! Young koala Peta recently crawled for the first time as she receives physiotherapy at Queensland’s Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital after being hit by a car. She’s working to gain strength so she can return to the wild.

Peta suffered multiple fractures across her body, and after receiving emergency surgery she has begun physiotherapy to strengthen the muscles in her fractured leg.

Peta’s vet, Dr. Rosie Booth, said Peta will be released back into the wild pending her full recovery in coming weeks. “She’s such a beautiful koala with a very pert personality. She is very eager to get back to life in the wild and the whole team here at the Wildlife Hospital have been working very hard to get her to that point.” Said Booth.

The adorable koala crawled around and observed her x-rays. Check out the photos below!
