Koala Leaps Between Trees at Australian Wildlife Sanctuary

An active koala was in his element jumping from tree to tree at an Australian wildlife sanctuary, video posted July 6 shows.

Slow motion footage shared by the Port Stephens Koala Hospital on July 6 shows the koala jumping from one branch to another in an enclosed habitat.

“With their long claws and amazing climbing ability, koalas find jumping from branch to branch quite easy and even jump from tree to tree in the eucalyptus forests,” the organization said in a Facebook post.

The group regularly shares updates on the progress of the koalas in their care via the shelter’s YouTube and Facebook pages. Credit: Port Stephens Koala Hospital via Storyful
