VOLUNTEERS at the hospital in Tolga Bat were knocked down by over 100 orphans of the flying eyes of the flying eye.
Hospital director Jenni McLean said the babies were sentenced after their mothers bit their ticks for paralysis while feeding on wild tobacco plants.
She said, depending on the weight of the tick season, she could have up to 500 orphaned blind mice who need attention.
Ms. McLean said that a team of seven full volunteers went to the forest to save flying foxes that were often still held by their dead mothers.
"It's sad. You have these pretty big healthy animals and a small tikac is enough to bring them to the end," she said.
Spectacular flying foxes were found only in Far North Kueensland and are likely to be listed as endangered species.

"They are currently listed as vulnerable. All CSIRO data indicate that their decline over the past 10 years has been pretty serious," she said.
Ms. McLean said that the flying foxes purchased at the Tolga facility had good chances to recover completely and return to the wilderness again.
"If you try to treat everything that comes at your rate of success, it will be bad because you should put more down," she said.
"But with the babies, we probably release about 98 percent of the coming," she said.
Now the baby recovery will be back in February.
