  2. How cute! Are they common in the area you live in?

    • I have lived here about 8 years, and have seen koalas about 5 times. They are certainly present in the bush, and feed on a particular sort of Eucalypt, but they are not commonly seen. They might look soft and cuddly, but they are not at all friendly and scratch and bite anyone who tries to pick them up. They are also quite large…..about the size of a labrador dog, but more solid. Have a look at this for more info – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Koala

      • Yes, I noticed those long claws! Didn’t realise they were that big.

  4. How cute. The only koala we have is a kind of teddy bear in my son’s bedroom or we have to go to the zoo. Nature looks really beautiful in Australia.

  5. What fun to see outside your door! We get a lot of squirrels in our yard, running along the fences and telephone wires. They are cute, but they are rodents!

    • Thanks Lisa, I was indeed lucky to spot him, they are quite timid and certainly not friendly in the wild.
