Tiny Koala Cries After Getting Kicked Out Of Tree By Grumpy Friend | HuffPost

We've all been there - someone bigger and tougher takes something we want and there's nothing left to do but cry about it. During koala breeding season, the dominant males will patrol their territory, going from tree to tree to check if any females are ready to mate. This tree monopoly often sees young males that have just reached sexual maturity - from 18 months old - pushed out of the mating game until they're old and tough enough to fight back. While it's not clear exactly how old the pair of fighting koalas are in the video above, the unsuccessful one is definitely younger, which would explain why all it can do is sit at the base of the Eucalyptus and make its dissatisfaction known.

A tiny koala was kicked out of a tree by a much larger bully before collapsing on the ground and having a painfully adorable tantrum. The smaller koala pauses its boohooing when coaxed by the man and woman who filmed the tear-jerking scene in Adelaide Hills, South Australia, and uploaded it Sunday to koala Facebook fan page, Cute Koala Kisses. Alexander said ultimately the little guy was found back in the tree, without any more trouble, come nightfall. Alexander said she first suspected that their fight was due to mating season, and the animals' sounds suggest that might be the case.
Koala Bears are some of the cutest creatures on the planet, but even they can have some serious rivalries. In this hilarious, but sad video, one Koala protects his turf by pushing another from a tree. Luckily, no Koalas were seriously hurt in the epic battle.
