  2. What a delightful capture. These wonderful creatures are in such strife - I saw an estimate that there will be none left in the wild here within a few years if we continue with our off the charts urban sprawl and deforestation. It is a disgraceful situation. Posted one year ago

The koala is an arboreal herbivorous marsupial native to Australia. It is the only extant representative of the family Phascolarctidae, and its closest living relatives are the wombats. The koala is found in coastal areas of the mainland's eastern and southern regions, inhabiting Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, and South Australia. It is easily recognisable by its stout, tailless body and large head with round, fluffy ears and large, spoon-shaped nose. The koala has a body length of 60–85 cm.. more
