Koala Photographed Carjacking a Land Rover: Legs too Short?

Most of us might be used to seeing cats getting inside the weirdest tight places a car can have, some enjoy ourselves watching petrol heads driving along with their dogs sitting in the passenger seat while holding their heads out the window. Australians on the other hand are rather going to see Koalas taking over the cuteness factor for a change and we love it.

The koala (calling it koala bear is wrong by the way) would normally inhabit open eucalypt woodlands since they mostly feed with the leaves of these trees. In fact, their diet is also the reason these animals are renown for being quite lazy, since the eucalypt has limited nutritional and caloric content. Anyway, this is where you’ll find the only surviving species of the Phascolarctidae family.

They can be found in coastal areas of the mainland’s eastern and southern regions, inhabiting Queensland, New South Wales, South Australia and Victoria. The last one is where this aspiring-driver marsupial was photographed as it would try to drive the vehicle. Well, we’re kidding obviously, since there's no way an animal could be able to drive. Or is there?

Anyway, the pictures were taken by 15-year old schoolboy Sam Box from rural Victoria who found the animal holding the wheel of a Land Rover as he would return home the other day. “We see them a fair bit here but never in the car. It was checking me out as much as I was checking him out. I opened the door and he just got out and walked away,” Sam told 9News.

Yep, it’s exactly what any petrolhead would do after somebody would catch him sneaking in a car only to check it out. In a way we totally get the poor Koala, too bad it's an animal...
