A koala

Healesville Sanctuary, near Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

I thought that some people might like to see a picture of a Koala even though it was taken in captivity.
Koalas are the most expensive animals to keep in Healesville. They eat only fresh eucalyptus leaves, not all of them. As they are pretty indigestible the poor things take their time digesting the stuff, they go into a kind of deep sleep. This particular one happen to be alert. Enjoy!
