A 15-year-old Australian boy had a hilarious and confusing encounter with a koala when he got off his school bus and saw the furry creature “trying to drive” his family’s Land Rover.
Reports say that 15-year-old Sam Box got off the bus after school and was surprised to find to koala in his family’s car with its hands on the wheel. Box quickly took pictures of the animal to capture the magnificent moment on camera, and as a result, he got some pretty fantastic photos.
After snapping the pictures, Box attempted to force the koala to flee by making noises, but the koala didn’t seem to want to leave the car and wasn’t afraid of the teen. Finally, Box opened the door and the koala calmly walked out.
“We see them a fair bit here but never in the car,” Box explained. “It was checking me out as much as I was checking him out. I opened the door and he just got out and walked away.”
The teen’s father Michael Box said he “couldn’t believe it” when his son showed him the pictures.
