Koalas caught in a sumo-wrestling match

Koalas caught in a sumo-wrestling match

Two koalas have been caught on camera locked in a tussle that could be described as a “sumo match.” Ashton Webster caught the tussle on camera as he walked his dogs in Foster, Victoria.

The video is an incredible reminder that despite their laid-back and cuddly looks, koalas can have an aggressive nature at times. The pair can be seen using what look eerily similar to moves used by wrestlers in Olympic matches. Although, to be fair, they also bite eat each other.

You can watch the video below.
