Hug You Like Koalas
IMPORTANT! Koalas can find it very stressful and exhausting to be handled by humans, so if you want a hug you should wait for the koala to make the first move. It’s just simple etiquette.
More facts about koalas:
- Koalas have a very low metabolic rate which means they have to conserve energy by sleeping for around 20 hours a day.
- Koalas are not bears, they are marsupials of course.
- The best Youtube comment I found while looking for koala videos was this: ‘I WANT TO FEED A KOALA A SANDWICH END OF DISCUSSION’
(Koalas only really eat eucalyptus leaves so it probably wouldn’t want that nasty old sandwich, but it’s a nice image.)
I used a lot of videos from Youtube and Vimeo to make this. By way of crediting them, there’s a list of videos used in the description here.
