Photos of an adorable koala have gone viral because he looks like he’s getting his nails done.

This marsupial is actually getting a lifesaving medical treatment.

Recent wildfires in Australia have been rough on koalas.

This guy had second degree burns on all of his paws, he was in shock, and dehydrated.

The koala was rescued by a fireman and then brought to a wildlife rescue center.

It was so bad that the koala was almost euthanized. But they opted to knock him out with anesthesia and work on his paws.

After the treatment the animal was doing a lot better.

Online joked about the koala getting spa treatments.
