WATCH: Koala Doggy Paddles Across River

Ever seen a Koala swim?

A koala filmed swimming across Kangaroo Island’s Harriet River has quickly become an internet sensation. Posted on March 11 by Facebook couple Joe and Jas , the footage captures the tree dwelling mammal practising its doggy paddle across the river.

While many koalas have been known to drown in backyard pools looking for water, this water-loving koala crossed the river easily and was, according to the couple spotted snoozing later on.
