Giving Water to a Friendly Koala


Koalas typically don't mingle with humans, but when temperatures in Australia rise to sweltering levels, they've been known to ask people for help.

In this video, a couple finds a lone koala up a tree in their yard, and offers it a bowl of water. The cold drink was a welcome kindness, it seems.

Ironically, the word "koala" is believed to have come from the Aboriginal word meaning "no drink," according to mnn.com. Most of this marsupial's hydration comes from the moisture in eucalyptus leaves, a staple in their diet.

It was a hot day and we had a Koala in our tree so we gave him some water in a bowl.
