It was a very close call for one lucky koala in Adelaide, who has featured in a video dodging lanes of traffic.
Viewed over 29,000 times, the Seven News clip shows the marsupial making its way across the busy highway.
Miraculously, the koala appears to escape unscathed, but the close call has prompted scores comments from animal lovers on the Seven News Facebook page.
"This is why the poor little things get run over...clearing away their habitat....when is it all going to stop...and they call it progress," wrote one.
Another commentator said: "If that's not playing chicken I dont know what is."
