You can come across the strangest things when you’re out in nature. Animals tend to be curious as well, and the meeting can end up being more memorable than you expect. When some cyclists were out in the Adelaide region of Southern Australia, they never expected that they’d have a close animal encounter.
They came across a tired and overheated koala wandering along the road, and they knew they needed to provide it with some help. But the koala jumped the gun before they did and started climbing their bikes as soon as they got close enough and stopped. They provided the creature with a long cool drink until rescuers showed up to provide her with hydration and a cool place to sleep.

Bush fires recently eliminated over 37,000 acres of forestry, making it difficult for animals like these koalas to find new homes. Share away, people.
