After a heartbreaking start to life, things are finally looking up for George the wombat. In fact, slowing him down now seems like the biggest challenge!!
At just 4 months of age, little George’s mum was hit and killed by a car. Thankfully a passer-by checked her pouch and discovered this tiny, scared face staring back at her. Suddenly alone in the world, George was brought to the Australian Reptile Park where General Manager Tim Faulkner became his new ‘fill-in’ family, providing him with the milk he needed and the cuddles he craved.
He’s now 8 months of age and after putting his difficult past behind him, this baby wombat is well and truly in the fast-lane to a happier life ahead!!
