Yes – This was a wild koala! On a tree branch above the road!
Until this moment I thought all koalas were grey, but many of the koalas along this road,actually have a brown looking coat, maybe this is dust covered, maybe not.
I was lucky enough to see it, and pull over just a few meters away from it, on side road, as the branch was over hanging the center of the road. To get high enough to it’s body / face level, i decided to, very carefully, stand on the bonnet / roof of my car.
This was the first & only time I’ve seen wild koalas – I was sooo excited!
