|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|The koala (Scientific name: Phascolarctos cinereus) is an arboreal herbivorous marsupial native to Australia, and the only extant representative of the family Phascolarctidae.|
The koala is found in coastal regions of eastern and southern Australia, from Adelaide to the southern part of Cape York Peninsula. Populations also extend for considerable distances inland in regions with enough moisture to support suitable woodlands. The koalas of South Australia were largely exterminated during the early part of the 20th century, but the state has since been repopulated with Victorian stock. The koala is not found in Tasmania or Western Australia.

I love Koalas. You have captured it's soft fir beautify.
Classic shot with the Koala very sleepy
Wow great close-up portrait of this Koala. Nothing says Australia like one of these cute guys. You shot this with nice details and lighting. Is this species at risk?
Hello Lior! Sleepy koala, so soft and fuzzy! Wonderful shot to show each hair individually, yet maintain the fluffiness of the fur. Good clear head shot, very well focused. You did a great job with this portrait. TFS! Thank you, Linda
