When most people think of koalas, they imagine adorable and seemingly friendly little animals that lounges in trees all day eating eucalyptus leaves.
What we didn’t envision is two koalas fighting over a spot in a tree leaving one on the ground crying like a small child.
A video uploaded to YouTube on Jan. 2 shows one extremely territorial koala pushing the other out of a tree. The bullied koala is seen yelping and wailing at the top of its little lungs at what just happened.
According to the Australian Koala Foundation, breeding season for koalas is from August to February so it’s possible the two combative koalas were competing for a mate, although we’re not sure of the sex of either marsupial.
We do know one thing from watching this incident: Koalas are territorial little creatures and you better not mess with their space.
