YOUNG KOALAS MAKE INTERESTING PETS FOR ANIMAL LOVERS OV THE ANTIPODES They are very easily tamed, and when captured as cubs speedily become attached to their owners and follow them about much as apuppy would. A more amiably inclined creature than the Koala would be hard to imagine. Occasionally, though, he may flyinto arage, for the duration of which one does well to keep beyond reach of his sharp claws. These exhibitions of temper, which are short-lived and infrequent, occur only among the older bears.
