Meet Batty - the very lucky Little Red Megabat, Flying-fox, Fruit bat - Australia Zoo

4th March 2010
Batty arrived at the Australian Wildlife Hospital on a rainy Wednesday night, desperately needing help. The juvenile Little Red Flying Fox had been hit by a car on the Sunshine Coast.

Upon arrival, Batty was assessed and x-rayed by Dr Stacey. Surgery was scheduled immediately to repair Batty's fractured left wing and open wound.

Dr Stacey stabilised the fractures by inserting a surgical pin. He then worked on closing the wound. Batty was prescribed pain relief, antibiotics, anti-inflammatory, and given extra fluids to help him recover.
In the 24 hours following surgery, Batty's condition stabilised. He even began showing a healthy appetite for fruit, juices and nectar- especially watermelon juice!

Batty is now recovering with a specialised bat carer, where he will be nursed back to perfect health along with a few other Little Red Flying Fox's.

Remember if you do discover an injured or orphaned bat, it is best to call a vaccinated bat rescuer, as bats can carry disease that can be transferred to humans. For wildlife emergencies phone 1300 369 652.
