How much can a Koala Bear?

http://www.theaustralian.news.com.au/story/0,25197,25042176-5006785,00.html
I know the Victorian bushfires have done so much damage to people and property and my heart goes out to them, but i saw this about a koala bear and had to share it. They might look cute and cuddly but they are still a bear and live in the wild. They won't attack you as such, but will protect themselves if threatened, but as you can see from the clip this little bloke survived, God knows how, but needed some water badly and was only to happy to accept it.

I was young and stupid then. I'm old and stupid now.
We get too soon old, and too late smart.
I started off with nothing and still have most of it left.

I don't care what YOU call them, we call them Koala Bears over here, not Koala marsupials.

No, but we got Drop bears and Kangawallafoxes depending what and how much we drink.

Macca... Your 'he' bear turned out to be a 'she' bear

Poor little thing though

i didn't say you couldn't call them a bear.. but you stated that they actually were in your post.. and they are not..

I don't think so SheepofBlue, if people couldn't get away in cars and on motorbikes and the fires caught them, I doubt the sheep would be fast enough
