Koala’s beach day

Take a look at these fascinating images of this koala swimming.

Koala’s beach day

Following on from the other week’s amazing images of things which you would only see in Australia, this was passed on to us by YOURLifeChoices member, Lawrence.

“Spotted on Flinders Beach on the North-West side of Straddie, where the koalas seem fairly tame.

About half way along the beach we saw this young fellow actually running up and down the beach, and playing around the kids like a puppy. Then, he decides to go into the water for a swim! Then the little chap went about 20 metres into the sea, swam around for a good half hour, fascinating onlookers, before coming back to the beach, where he was interrogated by Constable Brian, and then released without charge. 

The little chap took a while to recover from his swim. We have never heard of or seen this behaviour before: a koala who likes to "play" with humans, and swim in the ocean. Unbelievable stuff which we'll always remember.”
