Koala Scratch / Devils Sleep
'How much can a koala bear...' well only so much when that itch needs to be scratched... but don't worry, no chance of falling out of the eucalypt tree...

For a koala, there is not much to worry about when you are in a sanctuary... and their day is spent, sleeping, grooming, resting, moving (only to reach for another eucalypt leaf), sleeping, eating, sleeping... well 20 hours per day sleeping and resting is not bad... it is the chewing leaves that takes up my time...

Tassie Devils love to sleep too, but that is because they are usually nocturnal animals...

The Tasmanian Devil is mainly a scavenger and feeds on whatever is available, us to be seen often where there is dead carrion in Tasmania. It is during the feeding that Tassie devils are renown for their rowdy communal feeding at the carcasses, this noise and displays is their characteristic way of establishing dominance amongst the pack.

Unfortunately the Tasmanian Devil are highly endangered due again due to the 'Devil Facial Tumour Disease'. New colonies have been established parts of Tasmania and on the mainland, in an attempt to prevent the spread of the disease and their extinction.

You can read more about it on the Save The Tasmanian Devil website.
There is also the Australian Koala Foundation website.

These photos were taken at the Trowunna Wildlife Park in Mole Creek, Tasmania.
