A teenager from the rural town of Maude, Victoria, was shocked to find a koala behind the wheel of his family's Land Rover.
Fifteen-year-old Sam Box was returning home from school when he spotted the potential carjacker propped up in the driver's seat.
Sam told 9News.com.au that he quickly snapped the photos, before making a bit of noise to scare the koala off.
"It was checking me out as much as I was checking him out."
"I opened the door and he just got out and walked away."
