Share on Facebook

People on the internet have been losing their minds after hearing the noise koalas make for the first time. It turns out that, despite how cute and cuddly the Australian animals may appear, they make the most horrifying noises.

Keep scrolling to hear it for yourself, though be warned: It may just scar you for life.

The marsupials, which reside in the heights of eucalyptus trees, have become one of the most popular symbols for the country.

Especially amongst shameless tourists like us, who will queue for hours to have a quick cuddle and stroke of one of the furry creatures.

But there’s something that’s so damn cute about the furry grey creatures.

As you are all probably aware, Australia has been completely torn apart in the last couple of months by devastating bushfires.

Millions of acres of land have been burnt out by the fires, thousands of homes have been destroyed, and at least 8 people have lost their lives.

Over a billion animals, reptiles, and birds have perished in the flames.

It’s the koalas who are facing the worst fate.

And tens of thousands of the marsupials are estimated to have died in the flames.

And, amid the crisis, people are rediscovering their love for the fragile creatures.

Many people are actually feeling disturbed regarding the animals, after a video of one making a stomach-churning noise went viral – Yes, koalas actually make sound, people.

Shows a koala sat in its enclosure, looking up at the camera and pulling a rather peculiar face… Am I the only one who’s never seen that expression on a koala before?

And what comes out of it is completely unexpected, and a little bit terrifying.

The noise, which is a weird grunting type of sound, is something that wouldn’t be out of place in a pig stye.

Let’s just say, the noise has ruined koalas for me forever.

The face alone is enough to haunt my nightmares, too.

People have been left completely traumatized.

With this Twitter user saying she wishes she could “unhear” some things.

And some are just sad that koalas are now ruined forever.

First chlamydia, now this?!

Though be warned: It may ruin the cute little koalas for you forever.

And, to make the noise even worse

Some have been insisting that this is a koala’s mating call. I’m not sure how much luck this little man will have making that kind of noise…
