ADELAIDE, Australia (AP) — A koala took the opportunity to cool off in an unoccupied air-conditioned car in Australia on Monday, relaxing on the leather seats as the owner tried to convince it to leave.
Australian winemaker Tim Whitrow was checking on his vineyard when he noticed the koala, local media reported.
He had left the car door open with the air conditioner on so that his dog could get in and out, Whitrow posted on his Facebook page.
Video from Whitrow shows him giving the koala a drink of water, before just about convincing it to scuttle away.
For part of the video, his dog sits in the passenger seat looking on as the scene unfolds.
Koalas' habitat makes them difficult to track, but heat-detecting drones could help
