AWWWWWWWWWWWWW!
Even cuter than the original cuteness.

For some reason I hear him with a German accent though.
I have no idea why.

It's a plot. This guy is getting their water, a couple of miles up the road, the bicyclists will suffer dehydration and be forced to stop because they gave all their water to the cute teddy bear-like creature ... then the rest of the pack will descend upon the unwary, dessicated cyclists and strip their bones clean.

And everybody will blame the dingos.

Because something as cute as a koala can't be that dangerous ...

lmao.

I think you're right, wolf, and I'm frightened. What cute cuddlers in the States are pulling the very same stunt?

He's lucky that koala didn't try and run up his leg. He wouldn't be so 'cute' then. lol

Give 'em half a chance and they'll kill you and everyone you love.

I've seen a grown man hospitalised, (koala clawed the inside of his forearm open) trying to pick up a wild koala.

Okay I fooled with that last one a bit.


But seriously, there are 22 photos of people hand-watering Koalas, all taken in the Adelaide area during the last heatwave. We are a bunch of softies really.

Damm, look at the claws on that bugger.

Oh, and I can't believe Cellars have stolen that picture and doctored it up with naughty comments.

All the better to emasculate you with, my dear!

Notice, also, that it has two opposable thumbs. It does make tracking them easier, but puts advanced technology within their grasp.

I see they left out the next pic where the bike rider dives out of the way as a car ran it over at about 40km/hr.

I've read that those little suckers can actually be quite nasty, even when completely unprovoked. Still, I think it's be cool to have em hangin around the yard.

Just have to remember they are not teddy bears but wild animals.

They are very noisy in mating season. They make a really horrible grunting noise that goes on all night long, and is very difficult to sleep through, and it's true that they can do some damage. If for some reason they come down from the trees and then they get a fright and you happen to be the closest thing that looks like a tree, they'll run up your leg and rip it to shreds.

I wouldn't say they're particularly vicious though. Mostly if they're on the ground they're putting most of their effort into thinking about going back up a tree for a feed and a snooze. They spend something like 70% of their time sleeping.

The group that gets the most damage from koalas are tourists who think they can just go over and pat them if they're on the ground or down low. Those things have claws! Leave them alone!!!
