No Covid rules to stop them hugging each other! Photographs show cute koalas cuddling at a park

These adorable koalas make the most of being with their cuddly friends, unlike locked down Britons who have spent nearly a year unable to hug their loved ones.

The heart-warming images of the furry marsupials were taken by park rangers in the Australian Reptile Park in Somersby, New South Wales, Australia.

And the adorable series of snaps has earned the cute animals a legion of fans around the world who cannot get enough of their pictures posted on social media.

A spokesman for the park said: "Koalas are estimated to be extinct in the wild by 2050 so we at The Australian Reptile Park are doing what we can to help make sure that doesn't happen.

"We want to protect them and keep them safe every way we can, so future generations can see them too."

The adorable pictures taken in New South Wales, Australia, have earned the family of koalas legions of fans online who enjoy seeing their antics from all over the world on social media
