A pair of cheeky koalas have taken the idea of a lazy weekend to heart, after they were filmed relaxing and dozing off on a South Australian deck.
Adorable footage shows one furry friend resting his head on a brick windowsill while another impatiently calls out for him to wake up.
The video was shot by local man Mark Blyth in Burnside, near Adelaide, before it and was uploaded to the official South Australia Facebook page on Saturday.
Adorable footage has arisen of a pair of cheeky koalas, with one furry friend seen dozing off and resting his head on a brick windowsill on a South Australian deck
‘We’ve all done it… After a BIG night out at the work Christmas party, Kev and his mate have been spotted re-enacting ‘The Hangover, Part Tree’ in Adelaide…’ the cute moment was captioned.
The video, which has been viewed nearly 75,000 times, ends with the tuckered-out friend being roused, before gradually deciding to get up.
‘Wouldn’t that be a buzz, waking up to find these darlings on your verandah,’ one person commented about the video.
While another jokingly added: ‘Definitely too many eucalyptus leaves for these two’.
In the clip shot near Adelaide, the other koala sits impatiently in front of the sleeping marsupial, calling out and grunting as he waits for him to wake up
Other suggested the sound one of the marsupials was making indicated they could be gearing up for mating season.
‘Two together is unusual. They must be mating, hence all the noise and crashing to sleep,’ one user said.
Koalas are mostly nocturnal making their appearance even more rare, with the marsupials usually sleeping up to 20 hours a day.
The Australian Koala Foundation cites habitat loss as one of the biggest threats affecting populations, with less than 80,000 remaining in the wild.
