Thirsty koala stops cyclist for water

 

ADELAIDE – In South Australia, a very thirsty Koala flagged down a group of cyclists and guzzled all their water.

Australia is in the grips of a massive heatwave with parts of the south recording temperatures of above 40 degrees Celsius.

 

The cyclists found a cuddly marsupial in the middle of the road and decided to stop and escort him back into the bush.

That was before he spotted the water and proceeded to drink heartily for a couple of minutes.

Bikebug2019 on Instagram posted photos of the incident, saying “Australian Koala Bears suffering severe thirst in a heatwave. This Koala just walked right up to me as I was descending and climbed up onto my bike while I gave him water. BEST THING TO HAPPEN TO ME ON A RIDE EVER.”

The cyclist went on to say, “There were about a dozen cyclists around me watching this (all men) and several commented that it was genuinely the best thing they’ve witnessed. What a truly wonderful experience,” she concluded.
