Koala Mother & Joey Walking in Suburbia


In keeping with its energy conservation lifestyle, the koala moves slowly. When on the ground it has a slow awkward walk, but it can gallop for the safety of the nearest tree if frightened. Once too big for the mother koala's pouch, the baby joey takes a free ride on its mother's back.
