Watch how these two furry devil babies from ‘Devil Ark’, the largest conservation breeding program for the Tasmanian devil on mainland Australia, are play fighting and sleepily drink from their bottles.
This is Raymond, an orphaned koala that was found abandoned beside a road in Brisbane, Australia. He was named after the man who found him.
Caretakers feared that Raymond wouldn’t survive because he weighed so little and wouldn’t feed properly.
Julie Zyzniewski, who is looking after him, says: “He had to be coaxed to feed. He was frail and his future was uncertain. Suddenly, one day he decided life wasn’t so bad and he has been absolutely powering along ever since…”
Raymond now sits at Julie’s desk all day and is fed by a bottle every 3 hours.
