Banjo, the Koala reportedly stolen from the Australian Reptile Park at Somersby, has been found in a car park on Tuesday afternoon, as reported by several international news sites.

The location of the 13-year-old Koala was reported to the park by an anonymous caller.

According to the reports, head keeper Tim Faulkner went to the specified car park and recovered Banjo inside a light-brown plastic thrash bin.

Banjo is said to be in fairly good condition but is slightly dehydrated when Faulkner found him.

Faulkner is currently administering fluids and a special vitamin supplement to keep Banjo‘s weight up.

Bolt cutters were reportedly used to open Banjo‘s enclosure on Monday night.
