Look at this koala. He's relaxing in a laundry basket. How cute is that?
This is Jimmy the koala. He's had a rough beginning, as his mother was struck and killed by a car in 2009 and Jimmy was saved by a passing motorist. He was found lying still on the side of the road, beside his mother. He was brought to the Port Macquarie Koala Hospital in Australia and he only weighed around 760g at that time! However, as time went on, Jimmy recovered and his future is looking pretty good right now.
After Tourism Australia posted photos (like the one above) onto their Facebook page, Jimmy became an internet sensation. There are photos of him clinging onto his caregiver's leg, sitting on a table and sitting near a sink. His photos have gathered hundreds of thousands of likes, shares and comments. Even during a round of encore posting, the photos have not failed to gain over thousands of comments and likes.
A while back, Jimmy the koala was released into the wild. However, his legacy will most certainly continue to live on around the internet.
