SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA - JULY 31: An as yet unnamed seven month-old Northern Koala joey clings to his mother Tara after emerging from her pouch at Sydney Wildlife World July 31, 2007 in Sydney, Australia. The zoo has recently had three koala's give birth to joeys, who have up until recently been mostly living in their mothers pouches, and suckling on milk. The Northern Koala species - a mammal - is on the vulnerable list of animals in New South Wales. (Photo by Ian Waldie/Getty Images)

My whole life I had this sweet little idea about how cute koala bears are. That is until I heard what they sound like…

I don’t know what I thought they would sound like? Maybe a purring kitty cat or even a sweet baby raccoon, but certainly not like this! Sure they are still adorable, but is there a mute button? Our intern Trever’s opinion on how he feels about the cute little guys has even changed after hearing them.

Instead of a cuddly little kitty, they sound more like a snorting warthog!
