A teenager has managed to save a koala by offering it a drink over the weekend's heatwave.
Footage has emerged of the teen holding a water bottle for the koala to drink from in Shepparton, Victoria.
According to Nine News, the teenager wants to become a zookeeper.
"He ended up drinking three bottles of water," she said.
While koalas don't usually drink water as they derive moisture from leaves, the extreme heat has dried out the leaves and forced the animals down to the group to search for water.
