Daisy Eastern Tube-Nosed Megabat, Flying-fox, Fruit bat - Australia Zoo

23rd March 2012
Age: Adult Sex: Female Weight: 51g

Found: Caught on a barbed wire fence at a property in Maleny.

Transported to: The Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital by the concerned home owner.

Veterinary Assessment: Dr Bec checked over Daisy and found two large holes in the membrane of her right wing. X-rays confirmed no fractures, and she was otherwise bright and responsive and eating well.

Treatment: Dr Bec administered Daisy pain relief and antibiotics and applied a hemorrhoid cream to help the wing membrane heal. She was then set up in a dark humidicrib in ICU for rest and observation.

Future: Daisy is now in care with a registered local bat carer, and will remain in care over the coming weeks while her wing heals. Once she is fully recovered, Daisy will be released back into the wild.

AZWH Statistic: Daisy is quite a special case, being only the fifth tube-nosed bat admitted for treatment since our opening in 2004!
