Be very very qwiet...

Sometimes koalas venture out from their natural habitat into suburban areas.
They should be approached with caution but if you are very very quiet and respectful, they will allow you to hold them.
Before releasing back into the wild.
Shhhhh, don't disturb the koalas.

(details here) (and yes, I know it isn't the right tree - there's a dearth of eucalypts in my back yard!)

Too cute! I love that you're trying to be biologically accurate, too. Because that is very important. ;)

How funny that Olivia had a photo of a koala in a tree on her blog! Synchronicity. He's adorable. And doesn't look vicious at all.

Bells said...

OMG. I am simply going to have to get one of my own. I NEED one. I love how he is palm sized. Too adorable!

ok, is he a koala or a drop bear? I am scared, he is giving me the evils....... He looks like he is ready to pounce and attack an unsuspecting laaadiiieee who is in the back yard quietly knitting.

ok, it was me that was attacked by the drop bear. I have not been the same since!

kms said...

Jan said...

He's lovely. Loads of gum trees here but they are enormous. He could sit in the jacaranda I can reach from large balcony off my room! LOL.

del said...

How adorable!

Leonie said...

He's beautiful, how lucky are you to have your very own koala in your backyard! Does he have any friends?

Ann said...

Such a cute Koala!! We don't have any koalas here but I have seen one in Brisbane, and held it too. They are really heavy!!

Em said...

Ohhhh, my goodness! I saw him and had a fit of the screaming girlies. I just wanna coo over how adorable and wee he is and use made up words like "cutesy-wootsey" and such. You see what your blog reduces me to? A babbling, girl-shaped pile of mush. Thanks! :-)

Sarah said...

Lin said...

He is lovely!

TinkingBell said...

So cute!

I MUST learn to crochet....

(Weirdness continues - security word is `mealcal' - I'm not sure if it's meal call or reminding me of the calories in what I am about to eat...)

Lynne said...

Oh so cute!

Jejune said...

What a sweetie!

Kate said...

maybe you could make one in bright red and call it a Drop Bear! V. cute : )

Nellie said...

He is divine, RR. I was visiting my sister last weekend when a very large koala strolled down her driveway (she lives in the bush). He wasnt a patch on your little cutie - he was a bit battle scarred.

Nora said...

He's a cutie! [Love the tree clarification...]
