Twitter Discovery: Dog Paws Look Like Koalas And You Can’t Unsee It

Twitter is considered by many social media users as one of the best social media platforms, and the reason for this is because people on Twitter are always up to something new.

In the most recent Twitter discovery that has been made, a person realized that dog paws look like koalas, and you can’t unsee it.

One thing’s for sure, dogs are the most adorable and most precious things on planet earth. These animals should be protected and loved at all times.

From their loving barks, cuddly love, and their cutie little eyes, dogs are just amazing.

Dog owners are pretty observant when it comes to their dogs, and one person on twitter was so observant that they found out dog paws exactly look like koalas.

@41Strange, a Twitter user, shared an image of a dog paw on Twitter and it viral right away.

After the post went viral, other people started to share their pet dogs’ paw images.

Here are some of the posts that were made:

In case you’re wondering what Koala paws look like, they do not look like dog paws.

In explanation for this, the Australian Koala Foundation said, “The Koala’s paws are specially adapted for gripping and climbing. Rough pads on the palms and soles help it to grip tree trunks and branches, and both front and hind paws have long sharp claws.”

They added, “Each paw has five digits; on the front paw, two digits are opposed to the other three–rather like a human’s thumb–so they are both able to be moved in opposition to the other three.”

They continued, “This allows the Koala to grip more securely. Distinctive parallel Koala scratch marks on tree trunks are due to this particular characteristic. On the hind paw, there is no claw on the biggest digit, which is opposable to the others for gripping. The second and third digits are fused together to form a double-clawed digit which is used for grooming purposes, such as for removing ticks.”

Time to check my dog’s paws!
