A Koala In A Christmas Tree: An Australian Found A Holiday Surprise & He's The Cutest Ever

Rockin’ around the Christmas tree — literally! An Australian family had an early holiday surprise this week, when they found a wild koala in a Christmas tree in their Adelaide Hills home.

In a Facebook post on December 2, wildlife rescue and rehabilitation organization 1300KOALAZ explained how the family came to find the unexpected visitor.

“A koala desperate to get in the Christmas spirit had wandered into Amanda McCormick’s house and decided it wanted to be the fairy on the Christmas tree,” wrote the non-profit.

The organization even admitted that they initially thought the rescue-call was a hoax!

In a video showing the animal clinging to her holiday decor, homeowner Amanda McCormick can be heard saying, “Hello sweetheart” and asking, “What are you doing in our tree? You belong outside.”

“I can’t believe you’re in my Christmas tree,” she giggles, adding, “[This is] not something you see every day!”

According to ABCNews, the family had left the door open for their pet dog to come in and out, allowing the wild animal to let itself in and get comfy!

The chilled-out koala’s festive adventure came to an end eventually, after McCormick contacted 1300KOALAZ for help.

The cuddly intruder was safely moved to a nearby tree and has since moved on.

This fuzzy friend wasn’t the only animal caught getting super-festive this year. Last month, a tiny owl was discovered inside NYC’s iconic Rockefeller tree.

Who knew Christmas trees were so comfy, eh?
