Meet Crescent Head Jimmy

by Holy Cuteness on July 12, 2012

This is Crescent Head Jimmy, an orphaned koala that was nursed back to health at Port Macquarie Koala Hospital after his mother was struck and killed by a car in 2009. When pictures of Jimmy were posted on Tourism Australia’s Facebook page he became a big hit as his pictures recieved more than 200,000 “likes” and 70,000 shares.

According to supervisor Cheyne Flanagan, to whose leg Jimmy can be seen clinging in the first photo, the baby koala was covered in bruises and in pretty bad shape when he first arrived. But thanks to the staff’s love and great care he was eventually able to return to the wild.
