Australia is home to many a curious creature, one of which is the koala.

Perhaps tired of munching on eucalyptus leaves, one koala decided to explore a restaurant in Adelaide.


Facebook user Xenia Ioannou said she whistled so that the koala could enter the door. It then ambled into the restaurant where people were having dinner, but didn’t bother any guests.

Ioannou captured the koala’s adventure on video:


Based on the video, while diners took photos, they made sure to stay clear of the marsupial in case it was afraid.

It made its way to the rest rooms where animal rescue officers eventually caught it. Ioannou described the koala as “friendly” and even allowed the officers to pat it. JB
