I found this online today and thought it was too much of a gorgeous animal story to not post for those that haven't seen it. smile.gif

What a gorgeous little koala, she must have been sooooo hot.

A baby koala who was abandoned by her mother in Victoria's heatwave has been dubbed 'Star' after finding internet fame.

A family in Maude, near Geelong, photographed the young female koala taking a dip after finding her on their verandah, shaking and distressed.

Wow - I meant to post this.

My uncle sent it to me - they were his friends. I didn't know it had become famous!! lol

Isn't it gorgeous!

We found a little possum hiding under the pram on our verandah on the Friday. I gave it a drink but couldn't get close enough to wet it down.sad.gif

That's so cute! Funny, I just got this emailed to me, and I thought it was going to be the same thing... but it wasn't! Poor Koalas - must be so hot for them sad.gif

It would have to be bloody hot for them to be so tame about approaching people!

Ohhhhhhhh look at this picture. Isn't it just amazing and so gorgeous! The poor little thing - I agree it must have been so hot to approach people.

I hope they cope today with our 43 degrees.

I wonder what people overseas would think about this pics. They might think that our koala's are so tame they wander up and ask for drinks and swims in our pools. tongue.gif
