Metal/Punk Bands Fucking Love Koalas

Who knew?

Me and Donna went to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary which was fucking awesome albeit slightly expensive
($33 entry and $16 for a photo opportunity with a Koala). We got to hold a Koala, we saw platypus diving for crayfish (which they are surprisingly bad at, they use electrical signals to find prey when underwater because they close their eyes when they dive) and we made friends with several Kangaroos as we were allowed to enter their enclosure and feed them.

Their cuteness is how they get you

What took me by surprise was the amount of punk/metal bands that have visited the centre and “Cuddled a Koala”

Saosin, 30 Seconds to Mars, Nine Inch Nails, Bayside, Yellowcard, As I Lay Dying, & Taking Back Sunday
Bayside, We Are Scientists, Hinder, Escape the Fate, Dropkick Murphys
Paramore, New Found Glory, The Wombats, & Corporate Image.

 

Silversun Pickups, The Devil Wears Prada, Doobie Brothers(?), Vampire Weekend, Tim Mcgraw(?)

Koala’s are pretty fucking hardcore, after the next guy left the Koala’s somehow massacred all of the volunteers and placed their decapatated heads onto spikes as a warning for future volunteers who think they can overthrow the Koala race.

 

George R R R R R R Martin

One lesson I learned that I should probably share with you is that Kangaroos only like to be petted on their chests and on their back, anywhere else and you will probably get a talon to the throat.

These should come with a warning label

If you’re in Brisbane you should definitely pop in a squeeze a Koala.
