Fig was admitted to our hospital as an orphaned baby in the summer of 2022. Fig’s mother was hit and killed by a car. Fortunately, thanks to the quick actions of a Good Samaritan, Fig and her siblings were rescued from their dead mother’s pouch. Unfortunately, Fig sustained the loss of her tail, an important appendage for all opossums. Due to this injury, Fig is unable to be released to the wild. Fig is a crowd favorite on our education programs!
