Once you see this koala paws, you can't unsee them...
People on Twitter are freaking out and sending dog paws photos after @41Strange shared the revelation that they form the shape of a koala.
Twitter is in tears after a video of a woman rescuing a badly burnt and wailing koala from a bushfire went viral. The koala was spotted crossing a road amongst the flames when a local woman, who told Nine News her name was Toni, rushed to the koala's aid, wrapping the animal in her shirt and pouring water over it. Toni then transported the injured koala to the nearby Port Macquarie Koala Hospital, a facility that is treating up to 15 affected koalas.
Aww. Let's try that again — Awwwwww.
At 150 days old and less than 500 grams, This tiny orphaned koala looks breathtakingly small. Actually, she should have still been in her mother's pouch but she was brought to Werribee Open Range Zoo by a wildlife carer three weeks ago after she fell from a tree in a Blue-gum plantation area. Sadly, her mom didn't survive and an external veterinarian had already made the difficult decision to euthanize her.
According to National Geographic, female koalas carry their offspring inside their pouches for up to six months, but because of the unfortunate circumstances, this female joey does not have that privilege.
The baby koala is now recovering well but will it will take a year of careful monitoring before hopefully being returned to the wild.

The Facebook page Animals Australia told this story of a parched Koala:
Courtney noticed that a male koala on her property had been struggling through scorching heat. Last Tuesday, he had come down low enough from his tree (likely on his way to the water bowl she had left for him) that she was able to reach him with the end of her hose. "He grabbed the hose, held onto it and drank from the end." ❤
