Koala makes itself at home in South Australian woman's Christmas tree after 'wandering in'

There are still 23 days until Christmas, but one koala couldn't wait — finding a way into a woman's home in South Australia and making itself comfortable in her Christmas tree.
The Adelaide and Hills Koala Rescue charity shared photos of the animal in its festive new perch this evening.
An Adelaide woman had found the koala nestled among her frosted baubles and snowflake decorations, and called the rescue service for assistance.
At first, the group explained in a post on Facebook, the operator "thought it was a prank call".
"But no, a koala desperate to get in the Christmas spirit had wandered into Amanda's house and decided it wanted to be the fairy on the Christmas tree."
In comments on the post, rescuers confirmed the koala was a female —who appeared to be quite at home amidst the green artificial foliage.
"Koalas are very curious creatures and if the opportunity presents itself, they will investigate," the team told 9News.com.au.
"We have rescued koalas in bathrooms, open inspections, children's prams, bicycles, brooms, toy cars ... but a Christmas tree is a first for us."
The best thing to do if you find a koala in your own home, they said, is to call your local koala rescue right away.
