Lucy came in on 9 September weighing 50g. She was found alone curled up in the gutter on Norris Road, Bracken Ridge.
Lucy was about three months old when found, she would have died if she was not placed into care straight away.
Initially she was on five feeds a day – about every five hours around the clock.
They are fast growing so it was not long before she was feeding herself by lapping milk from a small bowl.
I collect gum and wattle for Lucy to eat. She will eventually be released back into the wild with a few other squirrel gliders.
The biggest threats to squirrel gliders are cats and the clearing of the trees.
