Gold Coast koala mums seen carrying precious joey cargo
We are well into the koala breeding season at the moment and koala mums carrying their precious joeys are being reported through our online form and koala phone message bank.
Cute koala joeys have had their photos snapped and details reported from Elanora and Currumbin Waters in the south all the way to Oxenford and Pimpama in the North.
Koala joeys emerge from their mothers pouch at around six months of age. This is when they can be seen tightly hugging or piggy backing mum. This is also when they are weaned off milk and begin a diet of Eucalypt leaves. The joey will continue to stay with mum till around 12 months old when they will move on and find their own territory.
Have you seen a koala joey and have a photo you would like to share?
