When I lived in Foster on the South Gippsland Highway, we had regular visits from koalas in the big gum tree right outside my bedroom window … especially during mating season.
They’re not normally very easy to spot when they sit so still and well camouflaged with the trunk of eucalypt trees, but when they start to make noises – they’re unmissable … lol
(To me, koalas sound like some sort of horrific squealing and snorting wild pig). ~ ER
Here is another photo of this lovely young koala sitting in the grass before he used his incredibly powerful claws, to climb the nearest tree. We found this one near Port Franklin.
