While most agreed the koala was certainly a contender for Australia’s most photogenic marsupial, others were less impressed.

‘It has nothing compared to a Quokka,’ one unimpressed person replied. 

Others became more enraged. ‘These things are like strippers, they may look nice but they’re walking sacks of chlamydia,’ one particularly opinionated person wrote. 

‘This is actually the least disgusting koala I’ve ever seen.’ 

 

Although opinions on the koala became divisive, the stir it created was acknowledged by all. 

‘This is probably the most exciting thing that’s happened in Adelaide since we were colonised,’ an Adelaide local declared. 

Another admitted: ‘My feelings towards koalas have been through a f*****g* roller coaster.’
