Koala Found Living In Australian Family's Christmas Tree

Koala Found Living In Australian Family's Christmas Tree

An adventurous koala managed to get into a house in Australia and tried to make a home in the family's Christmas tree. It's worth checking out, because it's absolutely adorable.

It's been a rough year for both koalas and humans, so perhaps this is the uplifting sort of content that we all need.

The curious critter managed to sneak into the house owned by the McCormick family in Adelaide, South Australia, where their dog eventually discovered her.

Taylah, 16, told the Guardian: "I think the dog went straight to the Christmas tree and was sniffing around and Mum thought that was a bit weird.

"There was baubles all over the floor... and she looked up and there was a koala in the tree.

"It was pretty tangled up in the lights. It was a fake tree and very old but she still tried eating the leaves off it... I saw her munch down on some but she stopped when she realised it was plastic."

Upon discovering the marsupial, the family immediately called animal control, but had to first convince them that it wasn't a joke.

They took Daphne outside the house, where she was released into a nearby area of bushland. The family have said that they'll be keeping a watchful eye out for her in future.

Speaking to the Standard, Dee Hearne-Hellon, co-founder of 1300Koalaz said: "Daphne is fine, I saw her today and she was high in the tree she went up yesterday, totally oblivious to the media storm she has caused.

"We all care for the koalas at home as we prefer to use donations to care for the koalas and regenerate lost habitat."
