Another Taronga Zoo highlight was, of course, the Koalas. What's there not to like about a Koala? They were one of the few animals at the zoo to behave themselves. All they want is a pile of eucalyptus. If only I were so easily appeased.
The mother was climbing like a champ with her little cub holding on for dear life. They are fantastic climbers. It's amazing what you can do with eight thumbs. One little bugger shot straight up his tree in a jiffy.
