Animals Nature Video

An energetic koala was filmed leaping from tree to tree.

Trudi Timbs was treated with a rare sighting when she spotted a bear called Dorothy jumping around Billies Bay, Queensland, in May.

Having climbed halfway up the first tree, the usually docile bear bounds over to a second tree and then a third before climbing on.

Trudi rescues sick koalas before helping heal them and also hand raises joey orphans.

Trudi said: “I have been tracking Dorothy for several years but had only seen her do this once before.

“It really is a fun thing to see.”
