I have to admit, this batch of photos is a little heavier on the aww category.
Don’t miss the stories at the end.
It is not common for a Koala to bear twins, and regrettably in this instance the Mum was struck and killed by a passing car.
Fortunately, the driver stopped, and took the mother to the local vet, not knowing she was dead, where it was discovered she had these twins in her pouch.
A recent earthquake in Japan was right in the area where giant pandas live. They were rescued and returned to the wild.
This post is truly a group affair. Thanks to Kathleen, Tim, Louise, Claire Elizabeth.
