Photos From The Zoo: Baby Koala Wearing a Cast After Falling From a Tree

Aww. Let's try that again — Awwwwww.

At 150 days old and less than 500 grams, This tiny orphaned koala looks breathtakingly small. Actually, she should have still been in her mother's pouch but she was brought to Werribee Open Range Zoo by a wildlife carer three weeks ago after she fell from a tree in a Blue-gum plantation area. Sadly, her mom didn't survive and an external veterinarian had already made the difficult decision to euthanize her. 

According to National Geographic, female koalas carry their offspring inside their pouches for up to six months, but because of the unfortunate circumstances, this female joey does not have that privilege.

The baby koala is now recovering well but will it will take a year of careful monitoring before hopefully being returned to the wild.

Kangaroos Hopping Around In Snow Prove The World's Gone Crazy: 10 GIFS and Images

It's official now: the world has started to get a bit whacky. We have been seeing hints of this for a while, as feral hogs took over the minds of innocent Twitter denizens; I don't think Trump has been doing much to help the situation; and surely this 50 meter long penis near Geelong, Australia isn't normal (what's going on Australia?). My point is, weird things are happening. And they got even weirder when a video emerged of a mob of kangaroos hopping around on the snow. Wait - what? Snow? Australia? Kangaroos? Something is wrong.

Meet Australia's Very Own Easter Bunny, The Greater Bilby!

The greater bilby is also known as the rabbit-eared bandicoot, once occupied over 80 percent of Australia, but due to decades and decades of decline, they've become nearly extinct and only a handful of them exist in remote regions of Australia.
