Seized by a Ginormous Koala!

Forget all your fears of being attacked by killer drop bears out in the Australian bush.

There’s a new threat posed by the Australian koala population. A mutation in the eucalyptus leaves which the koalas eat, has caused these once small, cuddly critters to grow and grow and grow and grow, dwarfing tall towers and crushing anything in its path.

Miss and I were simply eating ice cream in Hyde Park when a huge paw swooped down from the sky and took us heavenwards. You could just imagine our horror. As much as I might love koalas, this was obviously no ordinary koala and not being able to get hold of any gum leaves in the city, it was a cranky koala as well…not at all like those sleepy koalas you see at the zoo.

Anyway, we were rescued and were much relieved to return to terra firma.

Take it from us, do not pat these koalas or even attempt to take photos. Instead, be afraid. Be very afraid. Miss and I were very lucky to escape and you might not be lucky!

    Thanks so much, Cara. The photos were taken in front of a green screen so we had no idea what they were up to and they did a fabulous job.

    Monika, Alas, they weren’t my editing skills. We stood in front of this green curtain and I had no idea what they were up to and when we left, these were for sale. There’s more of them in the following post.
    I’m not acftually sure that I’ve ever patted a koala. I do have some photos of my son as a baby with a koala but I have no memory of what their fur feels like. Possums are beautifully soft and in New Zealand, where they were introduced and became a pest, they sell their pelts. This is sort of like an inverse environmental thing.
