A baby Koala was found abandoned underneath a tree and was able to reunite with its mother, who had gone missing, three days later.


The little Koala was discovered last Thursday, August 16, 2018, in the front yard of a home in Adelaide's north-east Ridgehaven, Australia.

The video of the heartwarming reunion has been uploaded to Facebook and the bond shared between the two animals is taking over the internet.

The baby was taken in by Wayne and Lynette Parsons, from Fauna Rescue SA, who immediately started caring for the little Koala.

In order to keep it alive and healthy, they bottle-fed it formula every three hours but always returning to the same tree to see if its mother had come back.

They went back to the house every morning and evening to look for the adult Koala, but she was nowhere to be found. Luckily, the homeowners, who are yet to be identified, called Wayne and Lynette on Thursday after seeing the mother looking for her baby.



They drove there as fast as they could and brought her with them. The couple allowed the female to sniff the baby Koala, which immediately held onto its mother in a sweet embrace

The mother was missing for three whole days and no one knows where she spent that time, but thankfully there was a happy ending to the tale. The story of Shirley and Jenny, two former circus elephants, also had a happy ending.


The elephants reunited after 20 years of being apart, at the Elephant Sanctuary, in Tennessee, and recognized each other in a heartbeat. They even bent the steel cage between them in an effort to get closer to one another.

Both animals were rescued and got reacquainted before being released into the wild, where they now can enjoy the rest of their lives in peace and quiet.
