There are always hidden treasures to be found in history. Just recently, rare footage from the archives of the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary in Fig Tree Pocket revealed a rare and beautiful sight.

The footage shows a large German Shepherd running around a field, but what catches one’s eyes are the two Koalas on his back. The dog’s passengers seem to be enjoying it as well.

One koala is shown clutching the dog’s neck as if holding on for dear life whilst the other one is positioned further down the dog’s back. The weight of these creatures don’t seem to bother the dog and looks to be enjoying the company as well.

This isn’t the first time that this marsupial has done something silly in the sanctuary. Just last year, a koala was caught striking a pose at the top of a gum tree. The koala was photographed grabbing a tree trunk and leaning back — like a pole dancer!

Preserving the habitat of these precious creatures and ensuring they continue to thrive are why the Brisbane City Council has invested $2 million to build a koala research centre in Fig Tree Pocket. The research centre will aid with habitat loss and the threats posed by dogs, cats, cars and diseases.
