Australia: Hanging with Koalas

image of a koala bear in AustraliaI know, it sounds gruesome, but it’s not what you think. Koalas, it seems, like to do two things more than anything else, and that’s eat and sleep. They achieve these two goals in life in a very simple manner. Koalas sleep in trees and when peckish, wake up, grab a leaf or two and eat. Then the koala goes back to sleep.

This makes it pretty hard to spot a koala in a tree as you can see from this photo I took in Australia last month.

That’s him/her, the dark lump in the middle of the picture. Could be a monkey (except there are none here) or maybe a bee-nest. But no, it’s a koala, moving so slowly as to defy time.

We stood around for quite some time, trying to decide if indeed we were looking at an animal, let alone a koala. But in the end a slight movement of the head was all it took to reveal a cute furry face. Unfortunately we had other things we needed to do in Australia, like catch a plane back to Cyprus in two weeks, so we had to move on to the kangaroos… and what a difference in nature they are to koalas.

I like the idea of a simple life, but boy koalas must be bored.
