Cherry Eastern Blossom Megabat, Flying-fox, Fruit bat - Australia Zoo

7th September 2015
Age: Adult Sex: Female Weight: 18.5gms

Found: Cherry was brought inside a house by a cat in Marcoola, QLD.

Transported to: The Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital by a kind member of the public.

Veterinary Assessment: Cherry was noticeably quiet when she arrived. After a thorough examination and x-rays, Dr Amber found that other than a minor wound on her shoulder, she had thankfully escaped any severe trauma.
Treatment: Dr Amber administered fluids, antibiotics and pain medication to aid Cherry's recovery before she was transferred to the ICU for close observation.

Outcome: After her condition had stabilised, Cherry was transferred to a registered wildlife carer to continue her rehabilitation. Once Cherry is ready, she will be released back into the wild, close to where she was found but away from any potential risks.

AZWH Fact: The eastern blossom bat has a long, thin, brush-like tongue and pointed nose for a highly specialised diet of pollen and nectar. Blossom bats play a vital role in pollinating many rainforest plants.
