The “selfie” craze shows no sign of slowing down- (though maybe they’re done with it at the White House.) These guys want to get in on the action, too!

[OK, it's 10am. Now you kids have seven hours here at Disneyland. I want you right here in the Koala-Park at 5pm sharp. Everyone have their lunch money and cell phone?]

Alicia A. from The Land Down Undah sent this email to us. “We had a young wild koala stay in our gum tree for a couple of days. We named him Toby :) and he was happy to pose for this selfie. All he wanted to do was drink and cuddle!”
["All he wanted to do was drink and cuddle." Now that is the life, my friends. -Ed.]
Look at this little snorgler Down Undah. Cute, eh? Of course he/she is.
Ever hear the expression “Appearances can be deceiving,” Alicia A.? (Turn speakers up–WHOA.)
“Ever wanted to know what a Koala sounds like? It is the Festive Season here in Australia, for everyone clearly! I found this guy strutting down our road after a few too many Gum Leaves!” -Alicia A.
September means spring time in Australia! And for the koalas, loff is in the air more than usual. You may remember koalas are having a hard time of it and September is Save the Koala Month. The good news is, this spring brings new hope for the cutest symbol of Australia. Aussies love the Cute! Check these links to read how Aussie landowners, wildlife biologists and the
government Parliament want their koalas!
September is Save the Koala Month! When it comes to Koalas it seems that our far away friends are as popular as ever. With their population down over 50% it is time to get the word out now to keep these adorable cuties from becoming endangered. Happily, a lot is being done before it is too late!
Thanks for the alert and the link to the Australian Koala Foundation from sender-inner Gabrielle C., who tells us, “There is much cuteness on there, so check it out! The attached picture was taken over the summer at the Cleveland Zoo’s koala exhibit.”
Add Koalas to your sox, slip on the boots, good to go.

“Keen koala is so hooked on kisses from a pretty cafe boss he meets her once a week for an after-hours smooch. Eddie has been romancing Lucy Ziwiski at her home in Noosa, on Australia’s Sunshine Coast, for the past month. He gave her a kiss to say hello and ever since then the koala returns every week for his kiss from the 36-year-old and even turned up on the porch of a neighbour’s house she was visiting.”
Thanks to Cuteporter Deb in NYC – “This is one of the most adorable stories I have ever heard. Pretty incredible!” More at the Metro News.
