Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, Brisbane, Australia

Koalas are often incorrectly referred to as "koala bears". Koalas are not related to bears, instead they belong to a special group of mammals called marsupials.
Marsupials have pouches and give birth to extremely underdeveloped young called joey.
Koalas are fussy eaters and will only consume 60 of the 800 eycalyptus species in Australia.

    Hold on, little one. Though Mom might think, you are becoming too heavy to be carried around.
    Cute.

    Yes indeed, a real nice little family-shot.
    As I know (from TV) Koalas are very slow
    moving creatures. - So you could take all
    the time you needed for this picture?
    Cheers - A.

  • s. sabine krause 10/07/2011 16:50

    awww, how sweet!! the ultimate version of the teddy bear!! ; )) their "neotenized appearance"* makes our hearts helplessly overflow with tenderness! i'm particularly touched by the shy and gentle pose and look of the cub! hugs, sabine.

    * i had to look that term up ; )) because only the german word "kindchenschema" popped up in my mind. found its english equivalent on wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cuteness
