Koalas.... What's not to love!
The koalas receive routine physical exams from their zookeepers.
(Secretly, I think the keepers can't wait to give them a hug!)
After their weight-check and physicals, the koalas enjoy a good snuggle :-) from Becky and Robyn.
A sip of water after a dose of vitamins and formula, from zookeeper, Rebecca.
Koalas actually drink very little water. They get moisture from the eucalyptus leaves they eat. They also sleep 18 hours a day. (There's not much energy in a eucalyptus leaf!)
Ahhhh... back to looking cute and cuddly. :-)
They do that soooooo well, don't they?
And they feel everybit as soft as they look!
