When a baby notices their mom for the first time, it’s magical. A few lucky staff members at a zoo caught the moment and it went viral.
The birth of a baby koala is an exceptional event. Koalas are native to Australia, and one of the cutest animals you’ll see in the country. Seeing a baby koala is rare, but always a great treat.
At Symbio Wildlife Park, the staff gets firsthand experience with koala families. This particular situation was special, as it involved a rare first-time moment.
A mother koala cradled her baby close, attending to its needs. He opened his eyes for the first time, look around, and then looked up at his mother. Their eyes met, and in that instant, you saw the special connection they shared.
The amazing moment was caught on video and has become the talk of the internet. If this is the life the young koala is being born into, then it will be loved for years.
A baby koala is an adorable marsupial that is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. On average, a koala sleeps up to 20 hours a day. Because of their few waking hours, this special baby/mother moment is considered to be an important part of the park’s history.
