Can You Bear It

More recognisable than most Australian icons, including ‘Our Bridge’ and the Sydney Opera House, the fuzzy Koala is the most represented Australian icon. Weighing in at approx 14kg, with extra long toenails, these super insatiable bears spend almost three years of their life eating  (average lifespan 5 years). At half a kilo a day and eighteen hours motionless, it’s surprising they’re not the size of a panda. A quick walk into any Australian souvenir store, $2 dollar shop or the zoo reveals the koala’s sad misrepresentation. He’s worth more. Watch out, HQ is giving him a creative makeover.
