Swimmer is a very old male swamp wallaby. During the extended dry period in Summer he got himself caught in a swimming pool fence in a backyard in Bungendore.

He spent a whole night caught in a very awkward position and as a result developed pressure sores on his thigh and leg and had foot drop due to a nerve injury. He required a splint because of his foot drop and it has taken several months for the pressure sores to heal.

He has a whole recovery room to himself and enjoys his daily bowl of fruit and brush. His weight has improved as has his fur and skin.
