Totally jealous of the person getting nosed by the curious koala pair!!!

 |  Jan 30, 2007 at 08:26 AM

How is it that koalas have already mastered cloning while we humans play catchup?

"Like this, ma?"

"Yes, dear, that's perfect."

 |  Jan 30, 2007 at 08:42 AM

Thank God for this site! All these years I thought I was the only person who was obsessed with animal cuteness and talked in silly voices about animals. I am not alone apparently. LMAO!

 |  Jan 30, 2007 at 08:44 AM

Sweet jumping Montezuma I needed this...a severe asthma attack last night had me whisked away by ambulance to the local emergency room for a couple hours, I'm feeling like hammered crap and my lungs hurt and I'm so scared of how bad the bill for this little adventure is gonna be...and then CO comes through and makes me squee and barf rainbows.

Thank you, Meg, and thanks to all my Peeps and their wonderfully silly comments. Y'all are tha greatest!

"Mom? You think we can scare them if I lay reeeeal close on your back and we pretend to be one two-headed koala?"

 |  Jan 30, 2007 at 08:59 AM

Sweet Jebus - look at the soft fluffy folds of mommy's belleh.

I know, Koala's really aren't soft, their fur is rather coarse. But still...they LOOK so soft.

Kritter, I think it's a new style in frames (blind as a CO bat,and so notice these things, having worn them since I was a tiddler. They have split arms now and usually look good, but obvy not from that angle). I luuuuurvvvve the expression on mum's face.

 |  Jan 30, 2007 at 09:21 AM

They're staring at those glasses and wondering if they're seeing double.

 |  Jan 30, 2007 at 10:15 AM

redhed -- If you ever make it out to Australia, Cairns Tropical Zoo is one of the few places in the country where you can hug a koala. Here's me: http://flickr.com/photos/shashachu/258235480/in/set-72157594308595707/

 |  Jan 30, 2007 at 10:30 AM

Sha Sha... do they really smell like Vicks Vaporub (eucalyptus?)
D2D... we're thinking about you... hang in there.

 |  Jan 30, 2007 at 10:36 AM

Apparently fed up with snakes, on his next visit to the zoo with the Dursleys, Harry Potter used his magic to get close to the koalas.

D2D, don't scare us like that! Feel better, babe.

Word gets around fast.
The koalas are all "but D2D, she's home today, and better, isn't she?" for you.

 |  Jan 30, 2007 at 11:42 AM

what this setup needs is another tinier koala on the baby's back...

 |  Jan 30, 2007 at 12:03 PM

Has the world gotten cuter lately?

CG - I think I would absolutely explode if that happened.

 |  Jan 30, 2007 at 12:10 PM

The double-double is too much today.

Sha Sha: you're so lucky! But the next picture (with a wombat?) is KILLER!

And yes, do koalas smell like eucalyptus?

 |  Jan 30, 2007 at 12:22 PM


Hard as it may be to believe, there was a time when we Koala did not dominate planet Earth. Indeed, the most prevalent species is the one that today serves our labor needs -- humans!

So how did this sea change take place? For the answer, we must look back hundreds of years, to the early days of what the humans called the "21st Century." Back then, the Koala was a slow-witted, sluggish creature, but environmental changes, in particular global climate change, would soon intervene.

Evolutionary forces were at work, and slowly, over the course of countless generations, the lowly Koala began to develop the vestigial beginnings of the second head that we take for granted today.

Thus equipped with an extra brain, the Koala became an advanced problem-solver, highly prized by its human masters. Koalas migrated from zoos and nature preserves into corporate boardrooms and government offices. World problems, such as overpopulation, hunger, terrorism and disease, were rapidly solved.

Ironically, this would prove to be the downfall of the human species itself, as the now mentally-agile Koala proved too smart for the humans to control. Acting on Koala advice, the humans created vast complexes for exercise and entertainment, which turned out to be concentration camps where even today, humans on treadmills provide the Koala population with safe, clean, renewable energy.

So the next time you complain about brushing the teeth of YOUR second head, remember -- it's the reason we Koalas rule the Earth.
