Daily Cute: Sneezy Koala Drinks Water

Daily Cute: Sneezy Koala Drinks Water

Normally koalas don’t drink water and get their hydration and moisture from gum leaves, but in times of drought they will drink from ponds, puddles — even buckets. This particular wild koala seems to be having a bit of trouble while drinking water though, as he sneezes while enjoying his cool drink of water.

Check back daily for more adorable animal videos.

Adorable yes, but the plight of koala's in general is not a good one :(

Pétropolis : now you can help the sanctuary that is home to farm animals, victims of exploitation, of abuse, and all kinds of cruelty. Some comes from Pétropolis some from other places around this city. Today there are 150 lucky animals, please give, for keeping them and to rescue other ones : ♥ Fairy sanctuary - or - ♥ Doe

Thank you for sharing

The current Australian government is full of criminals and needs changing. They are ruining the environment with logging and coal production, among other destructive practices from Australian corporations which are some of the worst.

Michelle S.:

It is probably foolish to trust anything written on this site without independent verification, but I did read this particular quote in this particular article. "This particular wild koala seems to be having a bit of trouble while drinking water though...."

I think my point about leaving wild animals alone is worth letting stand in any case, however, but your objection to it is noted.

M.N.J.: Based on this video I don't think this koala lives in the wild, not to say that he is a pet, but it seems more like a small sanctuary where they keep koalas safe from a human ravaged planet.

That's the most active koala I've seen on video!

(con't)

Thousands are killed each year by cars and dogs. Many population areas have already become extinct. Whereas, there used to be millions of this wonderful animal, only 40,000-50,000 may remain. The present high rate of loss appears to be continuing. The situation is dire for these loveable creatures.

Koalas need to fear humans. They haven't been their friends.
