Handsome young male koala Swaggie made two separate visits to Koala Gardens in 2020. In August he tried waltzing Matilda who was having none of it.

He may have had an eye on the Koala Gardens ladies again during his visit in October, but colony male Bullet soon sent him packing.

Hopefully after his adventures at Koala Gardens he found a good home and fathered joeys.

Swaggie is holding onto a narrow tree stem with both feet and his left front paw. He is reaching behind him with his right arm to grasp some leaves. His head is tirned to the right as he selects which leaves he wants to eat.

There is some great video Swaggie and the Koala Gardens colony on YouTube. He appears in the Koala Gardens Happenings for 2020.
