We have frequent visitors from these furry fellows - the Australian Koala. Kenneth, pictured here, was a frequent visitor and used to visit every couple of weeks and stay for a few days, then wander off on his route. Check out more about Koalas on this link.
Koalas are very territorial, live alone and usually have a specific area that is their territory. Commonly thought to eat only a very limited variety of eucalypt trees, this has now been disproven. They prefer about 12 varieties, but will eat other eucalypts if their favourites are not available. They have been know to eat other species of native trees when hungry.
Kenneth spent so much time ine one of our trees, that the poor tree is in danger of dieing. This is very common because Koalas love the young new leaves and will move on to another tree when they have eaten the new growth.
Sadly, although we have had mother and baby visit, we haven't seen Kenneth since last August.
