So, Australia is apparently having a crazy heat wave. I know, we think of Australia as just plain hot all the time, but apparently that's not the case. Or, it's more the case than usual....or something.
What's a poor koala to do when it's been over 40 degrees Celsius (104 F) for several weeks?
Apparently, if you're this little guy, you take refuge on someone's shady back porch. That person, in turn, takes pity and puts out a bowl of water.
As if that weren't lovely enough, you decide that while a quick drink is nice, you really would like a nice cool bath.
Ready for the cutest thing EVER IN THE KNOWN UNIVERSE!?!
Like I said: Tough life out there for a marsupial.
(also, did you know that certain koala populations have been hit by chlamydia??? I'm telling you, it's a rough life!)
