In Adelaide, Australia, Amanda McCormick was surprised to find a koala in her Christmas Tree.

McCormick recounted the moment she noticed a koala hanging onto her artificial tree to The Guardian, with daughter Taylah, 16, saying the animal was "pretty tangled up in the lights" at first.

"It was a fake tree and very old but she still tried eating the leaves off it. I saw her munch down on some but she stopped when she realized it was plastic," she told the outlet.

"I thought one of my kids may have put like a soft toy in there, but no, it was a live one," she added.

McCormick called the animal rescue center who initially thought it was a prank call.

"This evening our hotline operator took a call. At first she thought she was the victim of a prank call," 1300 Koalaz wrote on Facebook.

"But no, a koala desperate to get in the Christmas spirit had wandered into Amanda McCormick's house and decided it wanted to be the fairy on the Christmas tree."
