Loud noises! (Travis)

I was woken up last night (our last night in a legit bed for who knows how long) by the wildest noise – it sounded like this.

A koala wandered through Ray and Lorainne’s yard. I think it was just saying hi – but why in the middle of the night? Punk.

  1. So, I’m thinking that the animal you are describing fits the descrition of a cuddly bear-like creature called a “koala” (whihc I would pronounce Co-ALA! Like Whala!) Here is a definition of said creature I found while searching the interwebs.

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Conservation status

    Least Concern (IUCN 3.1)[2]
    Scientific classification
    Kingdom: Animalia
    Phylum: Chordata
    Class: Mammalia
    Infraclass: Marsupialia
    Order: Diprotodontia
    Family: Phascolarctidae
    Genus: Phascolarctos
    Species: P. cinereus
    Binomial name
    Phascolarctos cinereus
    (Goldfuss, 1817)

    The koala (Phascolarctos cinereus) is an arboreal herbivorous marsupial native to Australia, and the only extant representative of the family Phascolarctidae.

    The koala is found in coastal regions of eastern and southern Australia, from Adelaide to the southern part of Cape York Peninsula. Populations also extend for considerable distances inland in regions with enough moisture to support suitable woodlands. The koalas of South Australia were largely exterminated during the early part of the 20th century, but the state has since been repopulated with Victorian stock. The koala is not found in Tasmania or Western Australia.”
