One cyclist stopped to aid a displaced koala in Australia last week, making a “new best friend” in the process.

Anna Heusler was on a biking outing with a group of cyclist friends on Thursday when they encountered a koala positioned in the middle of the road in Adelaide, South Australia.

Though koala sightings aren’t uncommon in the area, what came next was particularly unusual — the wild animal approached the cyclists, thirsty for a drink of water.

“This Koala walked right up to me as I was descending and climbed up onto my bike while I gave him water,” she wrote on Instagram, sharing a photo of the animal sitting on her bike spokes as she patted its head. “BEST THING TO HAPPEN TO ME ON A RIDE EVER.”

“There were about a dozen cyclists around me watching this (all men) and several commented that it was genuinely the best thing they’ve witnessed,” she wrote on Instagram, sharing a video of the remarkable moment. “What a truly wonderful experience.”
