If there's one thing that reigns as a universal truth, it's the fact that animals are the cutest. No matter if it's a little kitten purring or a big cat on the hunt for food, we can't help but gush over them.

Well, there's something that makes them even cuter, animals with casts.

Is this tiny Koala.

This baby broke her arm after allegedly falling out of a tree at a logging plantation in Victoria, Australia.

Unfortunately, the baby's mother had much worse injuries and had to be put to sleep. But this little joey was very lucky to have survived the fall.

Especially, as she is believed to be only around 150 days old

Thankfully, she was taken to the Weribee Open Range Zoo to be looked after, where her damaged arm is healing well.

She was really fortunate to have just a broken arm.

VT reported that veterinary nurse, Jess Rice, said: "It was really touch-and-go when she was brought to us. She was just at the stage where she would have been starting to poke her head out of mum’s pouch. Joeys that size don’t have a good survival rate in care."

Well, we hope that all these little guys have a speedy recovery!
