For one inquisitive koala, its willingness to venture inside a South Australian home paid off -- with a refreshing bowl of water。对于一只好奇的考拉来说,它想要去南澳大利亚的一处民居探险的愿望得到了回报:它得到了一碗沁人心脾的清水。

In a video posted on YouTube recently, a koala walks into a house and takes a stroll around. Adelaide Hills resident Alicia Alexander managed to capture the unusual sight on film and followed the marsupial as it made its way around her home。在最近发布到YouTube的一段视频中,一只考拉走进一间房屋并四处逛了逛。阿德莱德山的居民亚莉西亚-亚历山大拍下了这个不同寻常的景象,她还跟着这只小考拉在屋子里逛来逛去。

"Uh oh," Alexander says in the video as the koala crosses the threshold into the house and waddles over to her. "Are you thirsty?"“哦噢,” 在考拉跨进门内走进房子,并蹒跚着走过她时,亚历山大在视频里说道。“你渴吗?”

Alexander, who has a blog devoted to koalas, is no stranger to this particular marsupial, which she often sees around her home. She explains in the video post: "I was delighted to find a koala on the front doorstep on my way out to work. She decides to walk in and make herself at home. This is a wild koala, yet so trusting and curious!"亚历山大有一个关于考拉的博客,所以她对这种特殊的有袋类动物并不陌生,她也经常在房子周围看到这些动物。她视频上传信息中解释道:“我在出门前,在前门台阶发现了一只考拉,我很高兴。她决定进屋,感觉就像在自己家一样。这是一只野生考拉,但还是很信任我,也很好奇!”

As Alexander notes, the local weather was rather warm and dry when she filmed the koala make itself at home, so it's likely that the marsupial was in need of refreshment. Though koalas typically obtain moisture from the leaves of eucalyptus

trees -- the animal's primary food source -- in times of drought, koalas may need to seek out other sources of water, according National Geographic。亚历山大说明道,当她拍摄家中的考拉的时候,当地天气很暖和干燥,因此考拉需要喝点水提神。根据《美国国家地理》杂志的报道,尽管在干旱时期考拉通常从桉树叶中获取水分(这种动物的主要食物来源),但考拉还需要从其他地方摄取水分。

The Australian Koala Foundation recommends that residents living near a koala habitat be cautious of the creatures and attempt to make properties more koala-friendly by maintaining natural vegetation, using an appropriate type of fence and ensuring that open swimming pools are secured。澳大利亚考拉基金会建议,住在考拉栖息地边的居民要对这种动物警觉一些,而且要让考拉生存环境更友好,保护它们需要的天然植被,使用适当的栅栏,并确保室外游泳池很安全。

The non-profit organization also suggests that locals place a container of water near a koala's "home tree" when the weather is particularly hot。这个非盈利的组织同样建议当地人在天气很热的时候在考拉的“树屋” 边放点水。

Koalas live primarily in eastern Australia, where their main source of food is the most prevalent; however, the pouched mammals are also commonly seen in South Australia. 考拉主要居住在东澳大利亚,那里的桉树最普遍,不过考拉在南澳大利亚也很常见。
