Baby Koala Mistakes Confused Schnauzer For Its Momma

A baby koala mistakes a Schnauzer for its momma, but Tony the Schnauzer isn’t quite ready for the responsibilities of parenthood.

Baby koalas spend the initial months of their lives nestled in their mother’s pouch, feeding on specialized milk.

Early Life of Koalas

At about six months, they begin to explore the world, clinging to their mother’s back.

This baby koala, approximately four months old, is at the cusp of this transitional phase.

For koalas, the term “joey” is not exclusive but shared among various marsupials. This also includes kangaroos and wallabies.
