It is not common for a Koala to have twins, and regrettably in this instance the Mum was struck and killed by a passing car.
Fortunately, the driver stopped and took the mother to the local vet, not knowing she was dead, where it was discovered she had these twins in her pouch.

Itís so nice to see a story that has a happy ending for koalas given the issues that they are facing nowadays.
Taking care of others is a great way to forget about our own problems and difficulties.
These are not island koalas, but thought it may interest you.
