We’ve seen that koala behavior can range from totally adorable to completely nasty. There are some koalas that just want to give hugs, while others are more interested in grand theft auto. Thankfully, this joey named Polly is of the kinder variety.

Beseeched by a volunteer who is helping to nurse her back to health, Polly climbs down from her tree for some cuddle time. She just loves cozying up and nipping at the man’s arm.

Polly will eventually be taken back to the Australian bush, but at least the volunteers who rescued her can enjoy her company for now.
