The pressing heat that has been hanging over Southern Australia for some time has made it difficult for wildlife to find natural water sources. A pool then becomes an attractive alternative, despite the risk.
“We can often spot Koalas in the nearby trees,” Liz says. “This is the first time however, one is brave enough to make it to the pool. The thirsty animal sipped for over an hour.”
Liz says afterwards the animal climbed on some shady rocks in the backyard where it remained for the rest of the day.
This is not the first time an Adelaide resident reports a wild animal seeking refuge in the pool or pond in their backyard.
A few months ago, a small water buffalo took a cooling dip in a families backyard pond.
Southern Australia has been having severe hot weather for some time but temperatures are finally beginning to cool down, although, come the weekend, the heat is on again.
