What do you mean I'm not a bear!



Do they look as if they care :) Koalas are anti-social critters, sleeping for most of the day, eating when awake. Sleeping, eating, sounds appealing no wonder they are so cuddly chubbly 💙 A bit like exhausted children they seem to be able to sleep in any position, the guy above and his mates below were out for the count, totally unaware of the many cameras clicking at Caversham Wildlife Park. The park is a huge hit with tourists who come to see uniquely Australian wildlife and despite the hot weather there were long queues waiting to have their pic taken with the koalas, exhausting stuff for the sleepy marsupials.. not as cuddly as they look by all accounts! More marsupials tomorrow. Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe.. P.s. much less scary than yesterday :)

  2. This time of year in the northern prairie the idea of eating and sleeping has appeal. Cute photos of these Koalas. I see the first one has found just the right chin support.

  4. Adorable photos! The only one I've ever seen was at the San Diego Zoo and it looked exactly like this, eyes closed, sound asleep.

  7. I remember visiting Healesville Sanctuary when I was in Melbourne many years ago which is a similar sort of place I imagine. I was rather talked into it by my friends' little girl but I enjoyed seeing the animals at such close quarters.

  8. It can be hard to get a good photo of a koala, but your first is a beauty.

  9. It is good he found something to rest his chin on in that first pic, Grace! They do looks very cuddly!

  10. My husband and I had a photo taken with a koala in 1999. It is a favourite of our holiday photos and sits on a shelf in the family room.

  11. That's the place I "had to" touch one, Grace :-)
    You made me grin with "sounds appealing" - Ingo must be one these hot days!

  17. Oh I like them so much, they look so cute. I saw them once I was in Australia in a tree in the wild!

  18. Even the very word, "marsupial," appeals to me. Holding a koala was crossed off my bucket list this past year.

    While down your way I even mailed out a Christmas card of a koala wearing a Santa hat.
