Alert Cuteporter Brinke G. has alerted us to a ZooBorns report on the freshly-borned baby koalas over at Australia’s Dreamworld park. Eleven joeys just joined the conservation project—and this lil’ guy just tipped the scales to OVERLOAD.

  7. I hear you on that hovertext. I can forgive the zookeeper, but yikes. And I thought human baby nails were treacherous!

  8. Super adorable!! I’ve never seen a bebeh koala before. Love those ears!

  9. Tiberia says:

    Baby koalas are called joeys? I thought that was baby ‘roos….

  10. I’m so lolling at these first three comments, I can imagine you guys just screaming (squeeaming?) over each other – “lookatthoseears!!” – “no, lookattheclaws!!!” – “no, lookattheBEF!!!!”

  11. Sigh, I need koala ears.
    For all of those mourning the news in Norway, take two koala ears and call me in the morning, but first, donate to the Norwegian Red Cross:

  12. I laughed my diet coke right out my nose at the hovertext. So funny . . . and at the same time, so true.

  13. round eer morsels. munch.

  14. ashagato says:

  15. 2ScoopsRice says:

  16. Ali-Baba says:

    The ear fuzz keeeels me!

  17. The nose! What a sweet kissable little critter. I would like my very own personal handful of koalas now, please.

  20. Theresa says:

    Baby marsupials.

  21. Theresa says:

    PS: BEEP!

  22. Joey? How YOU doin’?

  23. This Joey can pick me up anytime he wants!

  24. I learn so much from this website. Now I know the correct term for a baby marsupial.

    This here joey is adorable!

  25. I hope that he grows into that beepable nose!

  26. victoreia says:

    You mean, “cup of joey”, right?

  27. chanpon says:

    Aww, who ever thought Jimmy Durante was so cute as a baby?

  28. People, you should skip over to ZooBorns to see the rest of the pix. They’ll make you squee for sure. I meant to jack a thread days ago, telling everybody about these adorable nippers, but I forgot–cuteness had wiped out my brain.

  29. Theresa says:

    Oh yes, espesh the ones of the mamas with their babies.

  30. That is about the sweetest little thing I’ve ever seen. *ded*

  31. Theresa says:

    PS Fird Birfle, where have you been?

  32. This koala goes to 11!

  33. 2ScoopsRice says:

    [pouts in unison] “I have been deprived of sheer koala kyootness…I no haz behbeh marsupial in hands either!” 😦

  34. I think the behbehs look awfully disapproving.

  35. bob drummond says:

    Yeah, those are some claws on that baby- OUCH !!!

  36. You’re such a good Friend for asking! 😉

  37. So cute til they grow up, start screaming and grunting and try to rip your face off.

  38. Until today, I was not aware of the fact that Koalas had pouches! O_O

  39. One Eyed Daruma says:

    Baby koalas are also called joeys…

  40. It’s dangerous to go alone! Take this!

  41. earlybird1 says:

    Awww, look how wide-eyed (and eared) and alert he is! Not me (dives back into coffee cup).

  42. And I was all, “THE NOSE!!”

  43. How you doin’, Joey?

  44. puffy21 says:


  45. Mary (the first) says:

    ok, hold the phone. Do you mean baby ‘possums are also “joey”?

  46. Miss Tara says:

    Wouldn’t scream (loudly) at a koala-ling. Might frighten him.

  47. I did not know this.

    And I love your nom de screen!

  48. tracylee says:
