Koalas are naturally adorable, and are popular because of their cute appearance. But these common traits of koalas do not end there.

Koalas can also be heroes as was evident in this video showing a koala mum. The heroic koala mum rescued her joey from a wire fence on after it became stuck while trying to follow her.

Spotted wailing, the young koala navigated the tricky task on a street in Burnside, South Australia, before its mother wandered over to lend a helping hand.

The adorable clip was captured by Nick of The Farm Barn in Adelaide, who decided  to rescue the joey himself before realizing help was on the way. In the video shared by more than 20,000 Facebook users, the pair were last seen wandering off with the baby beautifully attached to mum’s back.
