Koala Carries Joey on Treetop Climb

Occurred on October 13, 2019 / Adelaide, South Australia, Australia

Info from Licensor: "My wife and I were bushwalking in Belair National Park, when we saw a Koala in a tree. As we walked under the tree, the koala started to climb down toward us, and we noticed that she had a joey on her back. The mother koala was very friendly, and even seemed to smile at us while showing off her gorgeous joey. She stopped for a snack of gum leaves, and even stood up on her back legs to reach the leaves with her joey holding her tightly. She then reversed down the tree, demonstrating the awesome grip of her sharp claws, and quickly climbed up another nearby tree with amazing speed. We feel so fortunate to have had this rare encounter with a koala in the wild."
