Too Cute: Thirsty Koala Grabs A Drink From Passing Cyclist

Wild koalas are not renowned for being overly friendly when it comes to interacting with humans but the heat of the midday sun and the promise of a refreshing drink must obviously affect their mood. That was certainly the case for this thirsty little creature on the South-Western Freeway, just outside Adelaide in Australia. The koala was spotted by a group of American cyclists and, as they stopped to get a closer look, the animal jumped on the front wheel of one of the bikes and proceeded to take a welcomed drink straight from the cyclist’s drink bottle. Although native to the country, koalas often struggle during periods of extreme heat and it is not unusual for them to get a much-needed drink by any means possible.
