    Default On the mend: 'Shrek' the stressed-out orphan baby wombat who lost all his fur

    Spare a thought for follically-challenged Shrek, the young wombat who has lost most of his hair from stress after being orphaned.

    Stressed out: The baby wombat may have lost its fur after being abandonned by its mother


    He was found by some kind-hearted animal lovers; but when he lost half his body weight and his hair they decided to seek professional help

    You may think he got his nickname from those sticky-out ears, but in fact it was given to him by vets in Healesville, Australia, when they noticed a green hue to his skin after he had been brought in for medical attention.
    Shrek's hair loss and odd colour has been put down to a fungal condition brought about by poor diet and stress from losing his mother.
    He was originally found and reared by some kind-hearted animal lovers; but when he lost half his body weight and his hair they decided to seek out professional help.
    Now however, Shrek is making a full recovery and his carers at the Maryknoll Wildlife Shelter hope he grows as big and strong as his namesake.

    Cutie! His front paws look like little human hands with pen caps on the fingers in the first photo.

    What a cutie. Wombats in captivity are as affectionate and sweet as a puppy.
