Amanda McCormick discovered that her Christmas tree had a new ornament after a live koala entered her home and snuggled in the branches of the white pine.

Luckily for the internet, he took pictures before calling a wildlife rescue group, 1300KOALAZ.

“Our hotline operator got a call”, the charity wrote on FB. “At first he thought he was the victim of a joke.”

They cheerfully reported that the koala was “desperate to get into the Christmas spirit.”

Amanda, who lives in the Coromandel Valley in South Australia, is not alone. Dee Hearne-Hellon, co-founder of 1300Koalaz, says koalas are sometimes known to sneak into homes.

Perhaps especially when there is a nice tree to climb.

The juvenile female was released into the neighborhood, which is in a region of perfect habitat for koalas, and sneaked up to a nearby tree.
