Phascolarctos cinereus

more commonly known as Koala.   There was more koala action last weekend, two koala in one tree outside our house making an incredible din. The first video is of the male koala bellowing, the second video is the female screaming, shortly after the male koala advanced on her and attempted to mate with her but she successfully fought him off, I'm assuming she wasn't very interested.  He chased her out to the end of the branch which made ominous cracking sounds but fortunately stayed in one piece. Turn up the volume for full enjoyment  :)

  1. Cool! I've never heard koala sounds before. Then again I've never seen one in real life either.
