A tree frog, less than 2 centimeters in length, miraculously survived from a serious injury with a hole in its chest.



On the 21st local time, foreign media such as Australian ABC News reported the story of a tree frog found with a hole in its chest.



Earlier this month, a nurse at the Queensland branch of the Royal Australian Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals discovered a tree frog while collecting eucalyptus leaves for koalas.

However, there was something like a lump on the frog's body, and the nurse took the frog and hurried to the veterinarian, Dr. Megan Barrow.




Dr. Barrow, who has operated and treated a variety of wildlife, was surprised to see the injured frog.

The nurse thought it was a lump because it was an organ that had leaked out of a hole in the frog's chest.



The frog, who was seriously injured, had to be operated on immediately, but Dr. Barrow was at a loss as to how to operate on this frog, which is less than two centimeters in size and has sensitive skin.




After much deliberation, Dr. Barrow first used a very small amount of anesthetic to keep the frog sufficiently sedated, and after the frog fell asleep, he performed the operation with a very small needle and suture.



Dr. Barrow said it was especially difficult to control the shaking of the hands when sealing the frog's wounds. I put it.




Thanks to a helping hand, the frog's body color returned to turquoise the day after the operation, and he was able to jump and jump.

Afterwards, the frog was given painkillers and antibiotics at the facility and recovered well, and returned to the wild within a week.



This is a 'news pick'.
