Zoo Info: Dr. Rebecca Millers was one of the treating vets on duty at the Wildlife Hospital when the babies were brought in.

“When the pups arrived, it was all hands on deck with the three vets and six vet nurses on duty quickly tending to each patient,” she said.

“We administered warm electrolyte fluids, wrapped them in special ‘bat wraps’ and kept them in a cosy environment to bring their temperature back up,” said Dr. Millers.

“Bat pups are soothed by dummies similar to human children so each of the 28 patients received their own comforting pacifier too,” she added
While bats might not normally be considered cute and cuddly, it's hard not to be drawn to dozens of rugged-up babies that needed help at a wildlife hospital in Queensland.

A group of 28 red flying fox pups was taken into the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital on the Sunshine Coast last week to be treated for hypothermia.

The pups, found on the ground, were thought to have fallen out of their tree roost after struggling with the colder weather.

"When the pups arrived, it was all hands on deck with the three vets and six vet nurses on duty quickly tending to each patient," veterinarian Dr Rebecca Millers said.

"We administered warm electrolyte fluids, wrapped them in special `bat wraps' and kept them in a cosy environment to bring their temperature back up.

"Bat pups are soothed by dummies similar to human children so each of the 28 patients received their own comforting pacifier too."

The bats were then sent to a specialist care facility on the Gold Coast.

More pups were arriving at the hospital on Saturday after being found on the ground at the same site at Mount Ommaney, which will now be monitored.
