Watching A Baby Koala Grow Up Is As Lovely As It Sounds

Sep 20, 2015 By Jake Brannon
It's 3 a.m. and something furry crawls across your face. An average person would scream, jump out of bed, turn on the lights and call animal control. But for Matt and Kylie, employees at the Symbio Wildlife Park in Australia, this is a normal night. The couple decided to adopt Imogen, a young koala, and raise her in their own home.

Imogen's mother, Kelly, allowed Matt and Kylie to adopt her daughter after deciding to adopt another koala herself. Seeing that Imogen was already strong, Kelly allowed the couple to take her daughter so she could focus more on her newly adopted son. As tough as raising a koala can be, there's no doubt Matt and Kylie are thankful for one koala's act of compassion that gave them the opportunity to raise Imogen.
