From the "Only in Australia" file...

The weather in South Australia has been pretty warm lately, so much so that this furry little guy took full advantage of an air-conditioned car with the door left open (so the family dog could hop in and out at his leisure...of course!)

Enjoy!

Re: From the "Only in Australia" file...

The title certainly does cover the article!

In North America, we lock the doors to prevent such things and of course leave a baby in the hot car with it turned-off. God-for-bid one wastes fuel.
Thanks for the great article!

Re: From the "Only in Australia" file...

LOL! I wouldn't fancy finding a koala in my car! How on earth would you get it out? Those claws are like scimitars! Much worse, even, than Rosetta's!

Respect to the auto owner, leaving the AC on for his pup and returning the koala to his rightful habitat. Super cute creatures but so destructive, look at those feet and attached claws.

Re: From the "Only in Australia" file...

Priceless! Are wild koalas naturally aggressive? This one seems rather tame!

Re: From the "Only in Australia" file...

Well Scott lets just say you wouldn’t want to find one climbing up your leg, those tree-climbing claws would tear you to shreds! Not to mention your upholstery. It’d make an interesting phone call to your insurance company “well it was like this, there was this koala see ...”’At least there’s video footage to back up the claim
