He Was Dying From Heat When He Crawled To Their House. Nobody Expected This

 Koalas, some will call them Koala bears – but they are not bears. They are marsupials. According to National Geographic, Koalas sleep up to 18 hours a day tucked into nooks or forks in the trees. Koalas live in eastern Australia and only eat eucalyptus leaves. Koalas do not need to drink water because the eucalyptus leaves provide all the moisture they require.

It is very rare to see a koala leave the trees. Being on the ground makes the koala more vulnerable to a predator, but they will travel on the ground occasionally to move from one tree to another or when moving to a new area. In 2009, during an scorching summer season, one Koala left his tree to get help. As a summer heatwave hit South Australia, the people and animals were in a dangerous situation.
 The heat was incredible, the temperatures reached 49 degrees Celsius (120 degrees Fahrenheit)! Many koalas left their homes in the eucalyptus trees to seek out shelter elsewhere.
 This little koala found a friendly family willing to offer him refuge from the heat – after he just wandered into their home.
 He was very dehydrated and approached their home for shade and protection. They offered a tub of water, and him not only drank some, but he also took a dip in it too!
This is certainly not normal koala behavior! But because the animal was in such distress, he did what he had to do! Lucky for him, the family offered him the much-needed water and shade.
