Koala visitor

    Recommended Posts

    Guest Guest75

    We have a Koala visiting:)

     

    Mrs Tyke heard a commotion from the dogs and saw a Koala shooting up a tree by the pool.

     

    Poor thing must be terrified.

    I'm glad the dogs did not get nearer to it.

     

    Just hope he is going to make his way on as the dogs are going ballistic in the house.

     

    I'll go and have a look in half an hour when he has had some space.

     

    Took a few piccies - Mr Koala was not going to smile for me:)

     

    Hope this link works..........

    He's gone off through to next door's land now.Mrs Tyke saw him crashing through the trees.

    Glad he is OK.

    Looks like he was just sheltering from the heat :)

    if anyone needs to see a koala i know a tree where there is ALWAYS one sometimes up to 5/6 at a time near us - common sight when you know where to look - cant say the same about roos unless you drive hours away into scrub.....

     

    i think id happily hang out in a tree in this god dammed heat -

     

    warning 3 days over 35 degrees is very unpleasant and its forecast for a further week - kids at school were moaning more than me doing x country this arvo :notworthy:

     

    heat - no seebreeze - life sucks at mo but a nice little peeky wave at southport all week

    For Roo's you just need to be at the back of us in Onkaparinga Hills ,at dusk you can see loads (40+) coming out to graze near the Onkaparinga National Park.

     

    Keep cool:):)

    I'd guess it was a Shingleback lizard.
