Some news about the koala’s in Planckendael

As you know, after the move of the koala’s to Zoo Antwerp, a young girl Alinga arrived in Planckendael, waiting for her beau. And this one is named Maka.

Jos has made a wonderful video of him. As you can see, this dude has a certain cool. Although the audience is rather very noisy, he is having everything under control, especially his food. But according to me, not his boomsie as it seems that “something was falling down from there”.

And the next video is actually the nightmare of all parents: Nur-Nuru-Bin being a witness of their “tralala” (most probably, the making of Oobi-Ooobi). Just watch the kid’s reaction. Simply hilarious.

  1. Dear Jos and Cecile,

    Thank you so much for the lovely videos! The sweet koalas are always so heart warming to see – a perfect start of a Sunday morning!

    I wish Alinga and Maka all the best and hope they will be happy together!

    Dear Patricia,

    Thank you for the suitable text to the article!

    Hugs from Mervi

  2. Dear Mervi and Patricia, Joe and Cecile
    I know that Koalas look so sweet and cuddly
    but they are in fact very Australian! They are
    strong characters and make it clear what they
    like and what they do not. They do not care
    what people think of them. They just go right ahead and do it!
    and they are good blokes and sheilas!

  3. Dear Cécile and Jos, thank you so much for sharing these videos with us. It is always a pleasure in watching them.
    Dear Mervi, and also thank you for publishing them here in KWM.
    Ralph, I agree with you: koala’s do look very fluffy and cuddly, but it is advisable not to touch them, especially not in the wild in Australia (at least that is what my former neighbour Erika always told me).
    I am also wishing Alinga and Maka a good life together and sweet babies.

  4. Dear Patricia, Jos and Cecile!
    Thank you for the news about koalas from Planckandal.
    Koalas are very cute animals, but they have the strong claws and can use them. The tra la la was impressive.

  5. Liebe Mervi, Jos und Cecile,

    vielen Dank für die schönen Bilder von den süßen Koalabären.
    Danke auch für die tollen und aufschlußreichen Videos.

    Die Bärten hatten jedenfalls viel Spaß, und die Kinder Aufklärungsunterrricht im Zoo.

    Liebe Grüße

  6. Dear Patricia and Mervi!
    Thank you for bringing us the news, pics and videos of the koalas in Planckendael by Cécile and Jos.

    They look so cute with sweet faces, soft fur and funny roundish bodies, Watching them the child-like characterization works perfectly and nearly everyone wants to have a cuddle with them.

    But they are not as kind as they look… Put brieflly, sometimes they interact anything but friendly – even with each other, especially the males.

    I wish this couple and their babies all the best and a good life!

    Danke fuer schöne nachrichten von Plandale koalas.



  8. Liebe Patricia,

    danke für deinen Bericht, die Fotos und Videos aus deinem Heimatzoo.
    Koalas sind zwar putzig aber nicht immer so friedlich wie sie aussehen.
    Mit den Pandas haben sie das stundenlange Essen von schwer verdaulicher
    Nahrung gemeinsam.

    Es ist vielleicht ganz gut, dass wir die Kommentare der Kids beim
    Tralala nicht verstehen….

    Liebe Grüße nach Leuwen,

  9. Danke für die Infos und schönen Videos
    über die Koalabären in Belgien ! 🙂
