How do you weigh a baby koala? With this simple yet clever fake branch tool that lets it hold on and keep still while being weighed on a digital scale.
Take a look at this cute baby koala (joey) being weighed at the Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park in South Australia. The wildlife park regularly weighs its baby koalas to make sure that they are healthy and growing.
By the way, koala joeys only weigh about one gram (0.035 oz) at birth and grow up to 10 times their birth size within 3 months.
