  1. Do you know why it’s been banned in New South Wales and why it’s such a bad idea? It’s because ALL KOALAS HAVE CHLAMYDIA!
    True. Actually most (not all) koalas have endemic chlamydia infections. Mother koalas feed their babies fresh shit from time to time, to establish their population of stomach bacteria they use to ferment and break down the leaves they eat. This also passes on the chlamydia. It lies dormant until they get stressed, like being held by humans every day, then it flares up and kills them.

      “Ew! EW!”
