Supercute Koala Swim to Canoe, Hangs Out With People

Aug 28, 2012 by NTDTV

This koala is the talk of the town, swimming across a creek to clamber aboard a canoe and make the rest of his journey in comfort…

Full script:

Traveling down the Tallebudgera Creek in Australia’s Gold Coast, you may be fortunate enough to see all kinds of wildlife

…. such as this super cute Koala paddling by the waters edge.

And although Koalas are not known for their swimming skills, this little fellow is happy to take the plunge.

What’s more, he knows exactly where he is going — straight to the group of canoeists paddling down the creek.

Not content with just saying hello, with a little help the furry friend clambers aboard.

Soon he is making himself comfortable.

The canoeists, meanwhile, are delighted with their handsome new passenger!

The adventurous marsupial was later taken to local spot known to be popular with Koalas.

The BBC writes this about it.

Koalas are the Barry Whites of the animal kingdom, producing surprisingly low-pitched bellows: here.
