Woman finds wild wallaby enjoying a nap in her bed
A woman was shocked to find a wild wallaby enjoying a nap in her comfy double bed.
Larissa Hill, 48, who has been traveling around Australia with her family for three months, was enjoying some alone time at their caravan in Mataranka, Northern Territory, while her husband and son were out fishing, metro.co.uk wrote.
Larissa said: ‘We actually saw the wallaby the night before, but I didn’t really think much of it.
“As I was coming out of the bathroom, I saw this wallaby laying on my bed, totally sprawled out.
“I got such a fright. I was totally frozen. I didn’t know what to do.
“She looked straight up at me but didn’t seem bothered at all. I burst out laughing.”
The nurse said the mischievous marsupial must have followed her inside after she accidentally left the sliding door open ‘just a fraction’ — and in a matter of seconds had brazenly hopped straight into Larissa’s bed for a leisurely hour-long nap.
The mum said the wallaby was ‘fussily tossing in the sheets’ to find a comfortable spot, before enjoying a luxurious hour-long snooze on the double bed.
She said: ‘I just left her alone to see what she would do. I thought she would just be up there for a minute and then get down.
“But she began getting really comfortable. She was changing positions and finding the softest spot.
“She had a good nap for around an hour. I guess she was tired.“
Her husband Les, 50, and 10-year-old Patrick were just as shocked as her when they returned home to find the unexpected guest in the bedroom.
Larissa added: “My husband and son came back, and they thought it was the funniest thing they’d ever seen. None of us
really knew what to do.
“The wallaby eventually woke up, and just hopped out of the bed and left. It was like it was the most normal thing in the world.
“I didn’t mind at all, as I adore animals. It was a really unique experience. You come across some funny things in the outback, and this kind of thing would only ever happen in Australia.
“I’ll never forget it.“
