Too Hot for Koalas

During the heatwave in South Australia in January, Koalas were brave enough to enter yards and accept water from humans.I did not take these photos I received them in an email with no information.

  1. You've got a great collection of photos there. Hard to believe that a koala could become that desperate. Goes to show how powerful the survival instinct is.

  5. Hi Diane - Thank so much for sharing these adorable pictures. I'm going to put a little post at my Tinkerbell's Momma Kat site directing people over here to see this.

    I would love to visit Australia someday. It always looks so beautiful on your blog. Have a good weekend.

  6. This is just AWESOME! They seem so strangely human in these pictures. Surreal...

    I must admit, I'd give anything for a little bit of that heatwave about now! :)

  7. I absolutely love those pictures. What a cutie. It's what I want to see *when* I come and visit Australia. *If* is probably a better word.

  8. This is one of the sweetest slide shows I have ever seen. I am so glad that there are those kind souls out there who are taking care of these thirsty little guys. I think of the people and wildlife in Australia all the time, with this heat and all those brushfires. Hope some relief is in sight.

    Denise there are still fires in Victoria but they had a cool change yesterday but now Western Australia near Perth have fires. It is supposed to be the first day of Autumn today but it is the hottest day we have had this summer. Weird weather.
