    1. Thank you very much, Ina! Yeah those Tazzy devils are very deceiving in photos. Spend a little time watching them and you see how vicious those little things are! A Very Happy New Year to you and Dennis as well!!

    1. Thank you, Samantha! Happy New Year to you too!! We were very lucky that the koala was actually looking in our direction rather than the other way 🙂
