Koala at Araucaria property, Scenic Rim

The koala that arrived at our home property about a month ago seems to have decided to stay.  He has been moving from tree to tree, but staying in the same corner of our property, and we hear his grunts and  strange rattling noises through the bedroom window at night.

This is the first koala we’ve seen at home for almost two years, so we were very pleased when he moved in, and even more pleased that he’s decided to stick around a while

Breeding season starts soon, so we hope a female might join him briefly.  I say briefly because koalas are solitary creatures, coming together for breeding but then going their separate ways again.

We hope this and other  photos showing the pattern of markings on his rump will help us recognize him as an individual if he moves on and then returns some day.
