This Helpless Baby Was Found on a Road Side. When the Mud's Washed Off? Unbelievable.

Thanks to evolution, Wildlife Rescue South Coast were able to save a baby wombat that was kept safe in its mother’s pouch.

According to Hero Viral, the Australian marsupials have evolved with their pouch facing backward. This help to protect their babies in the pouch, and keep them free of dirt and other potentially harmful particles.

Wildlife Rescue South Coast came across a female wombat that was accidentally wounded by a horse. The mother wombat tried to seek protection in her burrow, but got stuck in the mud and died from her wounds before they could save her.

Rescuers were surprised when they found a little 3-pound baby wombat still inside her mother’s pouch. The baby was terrified and covered in mud.

She was taken in by Wildlife Rescue South Coast to their sanctuary to get cleaned up and calmed down. Rescuers named her Mudsey and helped her get over the trauma of losing her mother. Mudsey is now fully recovered and lives a happy life playing with her other animal friends at the sanctuary, including other rescued wombats.
