Thirsty Koala -- Nick Lothian Facebook

These Australian cyclists were joined by a surprisingly spry little companion while journeying through Adelaide on Tuesday.

A koala by the side of the South Eastern Freeway accosted the travelers during their break from pedaling. The wee marsupial crawled up on the nearest bicycle wheel and took a hefty drink of H2O while animal services was called.

The thirsty koala was later given a clean bill of health and released back into the wild, while his new Facebook photo accrued some fame.
