Aussie 9 August animalia

Published 9th August 2011 by lucy moore

A trip to the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary – a completely fun day owing to the marked similarity of koalas to teenagers: they eat vast quantities of unhealthy food and they sleep 19 hours out of every 24. They just blob around in eucalyptus trees in a ‘whateva’ type coma. How did they ever survive the rigours of evolution when they eat only 50 of the 800 species of eucalyptus leaves and even then need to do very unsavoury things to make their offspring impervious to the toxins in them? We were very taken with the duckbilled platypus who, by contrast, spent his time frantically paddling round his tank in search of who knows what platypus nirvana.
