Cool koala’s laid-back charms take Australia by storm and win him a legion of online fans
A cuddly koala has been pictured striking a sexy pose in the bush of Australia Saucy marsupial struck his most seductive 'come hither' pose to lure females Sexy koala set internet ablaze with thousands of Instagram likes and comments
A cuddly koala has been caught striking a sexy pose up a tree in the Australian bush.
The saucy marsupial struck his most seductive ‘come hither’ stance in a bid to gather some romantic interest from female of the species.
He was pictured relaxing in the branches of a tree in the picturesque bushland on the Gold Coast of Queensland, Australia.
The laid-back Lothario went viral, setting the internet ablaze with thousands of Instagram likes and social media comments about the herbivorous’s quest for love.
British ex-pat, Ross Long, was exploring the area when he saw the majestic creature chilling in a tree, with his limbs outstretched.
Part-time photographer and risk analyst, Mr Long took some snaps of the koala just at the right moment.
He said: ‘He’s certainly positioned in a seductive manner as if to say: “I’m ready for action”.
‘There were other female koalas nearby, so I guess this is his way of letting them know that he was indeed ready.
‘He looked more chilled than a Friday night of Netflix and chill. Perhaps this explains why chlamydia is such an issue in the koala world?’
Ross, who is originally from Cornwall but is based in Sydney’s Manly, said the koala held the pose for the whole encounter, making him the easiest model he’d worked with.
‘I’m lucky enough to travel around Australia and New Zealand most of the year which gives me plenty of photography opportunities.
‘There is just so much variety in Australia, depending on where you go, the animals adapt with the landscape.
‘It keeps everything fresh and exciting.’
