Meet Henry the VIII

Here is a little Ring Tail Possum that was attacked by Crows.
He has an Ulcer on his left Eye and is dehydrated and not a very happy little Boy. His Name- Henry [the 8th] as he is the 8th ringtail that has come into care. Lets see what he looks like in a few days hey. Feeding and being rehydrated as I Type.

Day 2 Henry the VIII is feeling better today. Here is getting Rehydrated with a Burston Blue Teat. Eye treatment is going well and he is feeling so much better with some pain relief too. Sorry about my dirty fingers but I have been chain sawing today and I did wash them Thrice...

Star Junior

Where do I start. Here is "Tippy" she was a release a while back and so far over the last 3 years she has returned each year with a new baby to show us. Seems we have a safe place to raise her young. The grass must be nice and tasty here at the refuge. Sorry about the hazy photos as this morning it was really foggy/Misty/Low Cloud. Wild and Free......

And we shall call it Star Junior. Here is the Big fella that visited with that tell tale white mark on his Forehead. Unfortunately Star was found hit by a car not 6 weeks ago on one of the tracks.-- His Legacy lives on. R.I.P. Star.
