Koala Fever

Everytime I turn on the tv it seems there's a new story about koalas. The first photo is amidst the devastation of the Australian wildfires.

The koala - who firefighters named Sam - had burned paws, was parched and in a lot of pain when firefighters rescued her. More on her story here.

This second koala was out and about last week in Australia when temps were 117 degrees! It approached the bikers out of desperation from dehydration say animal experts. Poor thing!

Let's end on a happy note. Another hot koala getting some relief! These photos were featured on Ellen.
