This little orphan was found on her dead mum. Weighing in at only 108g, the little possum came in very dehydrated. We have hydrated her orally and subcutaneously and checked her eyes for ulcers.
Baby possums that have been on their own for a while can get attacked by ants, which often leads to damage to their eyes. This little one was lucky and got the all-clear. She will go to a wildlife carer who will raise her until she is ready to get released back into the wild. If you find a baby possum please bring it to us or contact a wildlife carer as they need special care to survive.
