"TEDDY" REGARDS THE PHOTOGRAPHER'S ACTIVITIES WITH FRIENDLY CURIOSITY There is no sport in hunting Koalas, for they make no serious effort to escape. If approached too closely, they may climb abithigher inthe tree (left) or may just sit and watch (right). If injured, they give a plaintive cry and hold on to the branch with alltheir strength. The Commonwealth authorities now protect these interesting creatures from hunters who formerly took advantage of their amiabledispositions toslaughter them fortheir fur.
