Petting koalas!

Me with a koala Me with a koala
I got to pet a koala! Their fur is fine but rough, like steel wires, and smells like eucalyptus. My hand smelled like eucalyptus afterwards. It seemed like it was drugged, staring around in a daze while it gnawed at leaves. The guide said that it wasn't true that it was drunk on eucalyptus oil, as its liver had evolved to handle it; in that case, I suspected that the koala had been nibbling on some other sort of leaves.
