Baby quoll no more than a handful
Staff at the Ballarat Wildlife Park are busy giving some tender loving care to a baby quoll abandoned by her mother.
Named “Flare” the 82- day old quoll has quickly become attached to her keepers and is improving rapidly from her ordeal.
A Ballarat Wildlife Park spokesperson said Flare had taken to the bottle and was even beginning to walk around.
“I don’t know why she was abandoned,” the spokesperson said.
“But things are looking positive though, there is still the possibility she may not come through.”
Quolls, she said, belonged to the Tasmanian Devil family and were found mainly in Tasmania.
