    ahh, cute! I want to hug him (:

  • Thankyou! It did take me a lot of effort to not hug him…. until the guide reminded us how vicious they are and I looked again at the size of the claws ;-)

    Was he hugging something/someone smaller?

  • Looks like it, doesn’t it? No, he was just hugging himself, the koala version of the foetal position I guess, sleeping as koalas do best :-P
