Thanks cape man and Fuzz. :D

Our local volunteer conservation group has been plugging away for twenty years trying to get koala habitat protected as National Park. We had a nice win this week, as reported in the following link.

Congratulations GB. Something good to take your mind off what else is going on for a little bit.

Don’t be fooled by cuteness, Fuzz. A closely related subspecies, the Drop Bear, is as savage as a grizzly!

"Drop Bear: a large, arboreal, predatory marsupial related to the koala, the size of a leopard, having coarse orange fur with dark mottling, with powerful forearms for climbing and attacking prey, and a bite made using broad powerful premolars rather than canines. They weigh 120 kilograms (260 lb) and have a length of 130 centimetres (51 in).

KOALAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

I got to hold one in Australia Zoo, and it really clinged on to me. I smelled of Eucalypt for hours afterwards :)

I am not surprised that any wild animal can be a problem when the mood strikes them. Something must be wrong with me because every time I see a Brown Bear I want to go tackle them :help:
