Koalas = G.O.A.T.

There’s nothing about koala bears I don’t like. Not only do they sleep 22 hours a day (and get high on eucalyptus for the other two), but aren’t they just THE CUTEST?!

Look at this little guy – apparently it was really hot so when he saw a basin of water in this family’s home, he stopped by to cool his nuts off.

Doesn’t he look like the cutest little old man you’ve ever seen? Doesn't he?

Cute? Eeesh, not so much. He has a look reminiscent of Father Jack in the bottom picture, complete with yellow dribble.

You're not supposed to touch them in the wild cos they have rabies and are really vicious. Australian animals are really scary, I was once charged by a wombat. Anyway, the point is, he's cute but also a dirty little bugger. xx

I once patted a koala in Australia and he let out a slow growl, hissed and tried to bite me me.
Although I did disturb him getting his snack on so I deserved it.

I held a Koala when I was a kid. They were my favorite animals after Squirrels and before Monkeys. Now in all honesty its back to Koala.

Last time down under I'm sure one gave me a wave/thumbs up in the zoo.

If you set a Koala Bear on fire it'll explode.

i read a story on the bbc about one that was dragged 300km by a car before the driver noticed the little dingbat clinging onto the front bumper with a face of fear. bless
