baby koala :)

WILDLIFE officers have come to the rescue of an abandoned baby koala who found internet stardom by being the baby in a bucket.
The baby was found shaking underneath a verandah and “looking very sick” after its mother was apparently overcome by the ferocious heatwave that struck Victoria last week. "The mum had become distressed and disorientated by the heat so she left the baby on its own without realising," "They’re normally up in the tree together, in a pair, and we see them all the time."

"I had to scoop water up in my hand to get it to drink and at first it wasn’t very unresponsive," Mrs Young told ninemsn.
"Eventually it realized the water was in the bowl and it just climbed in itself."
