Be nice' cos I gotta stick and big claws .... !

Did you know that Koalas are not bears? They are marsupials just like Kangaroos. Marsupials have babies that are like small baked beans, are blind and deaf and need to crawl into their mother's pouch to drink milk for many months before they can come out into the world. Baby koalas usually ride on their mother's back. Koalas spend most of their time in the trees eating eucalyptus leaves. They are nocturnal, which means they find a fork in the tree branches and nap during the day and are more active at night.

Koalas look cute and cuddly, but they are actually wild animals with very big, sharp claws that help them climb and hang onto trees in strong winds.

@CElliottUK: Wild. He is part of a koala colony on Mornington Peninsula. He is a young one and roves eating the manna gum leaves around the place where i holiday throughout the year. It is a wonder to see these animals wild and free only one hour drive from Melbourne.

@DIMITRIOS: I am sure there must be a koala hiding away in a tree in a zoo somewhere in Greece? My real pleasure is to find them free and healthy like this fellow. Perhaps you need a holiday in Australia? :-)
