San Diego Zoo koala

This is the only time I’ve ever seen a real koala. This photo was taken at the San Diego Zoo in 2009. Even though these little guys don’t do much, they are awfully cute.

Hi there! I am the founder of Tips for Family Trips. I am a married mom of two children, ages 10 and 12, living near Salt Lake City, Utah. We took our first child on a two-week road trip when she was four weeks old and we have been traveling as a family ever since. We love to get out of the house to see and do fun things, both far away and in our own neighborhood.

  2. You got such a great photo! I can’t tell you how long we stood by the koalas trying to get a good pic when we were at the San Diego Zoo. Emma loves them and desperately wanted a photo but they were all partially hidden behind branches. She was taking pics with her camera and I was using mine and we just kept moving around to get different angles trying to get one that she was satisfied with. Eventually she got upset and gave up!

    • I didn’t realize that this was such a lucky shot. I hope you get to try again before too long!

  3. Can’t get much cuter than that! Nice shot. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a koala — even at the zoo.

  4. Love Koalas. The only animals that can out-sleep my teenagers. You really did get quite a nice shot of this one. Now you can start a lifelong quest to get a picture of one with it’s eyes open.

    • LOL. Are koalas nocturnal? I lived in the heat of the Australian outback I’d probably want to sleep all day and only move at night. It would be pretty cool to get a photo of a koala with its eyes open.
