Elsa is a two-year-old koala who lives in the Australian Reptile Park on the coast of New South Wales, Australia. The baby was rescued from the wild when she was a few days old. Her mother couldn’t take care of her, so the park staff took her in.
A girl named Haley took Elsa into her care. The girl fed the baby by the hour with milk in her home, and sensitively cared for her. Thanks to this care, the koala grew up healthy, strong, and happy, and now lives in the spacious enclosure of the sanctuary.
“My children take it in turns naming the animals that I care for, and I asked my four-year-old daughter what she wanted to call the koala,’ Ms. Shute previously explained. And of course, the first name to come out of her mouth was “Elsa”.”
Now Elsa is two years old, and she still loves her caretaker. The koala adores it when she gives her a massage. These pictures show Haley giving her pet a massage, and Elsa is enjoying it to the fullest. During the “session,” the koala closes her eyes and takes a blissful nap.
When Elsa was moved to the enclosure, she befriended Hope, a rescued female wombat. They were the same age when the staff decided to introduce them and put them in the same enclosure. The caretakers didn’t expect the pair to become instant friends!
Wombats are considered to be the closest relatives of koalas, so this friendship takes place. Now Elsa spends a lot of time with her best friend – the staff is always curious to watch them.
