There was a Koala East Bound on the Great Western Highway at Woodford about 1/2 km before Bulls Camp. I with other vehicles stopped and i ushered the Koala off to the side of the road where it climbed up a big gum tree. It was not injured, it just looked startled to see me behind it.
The Diprotodontia (/daɪˌproʊtɵˈdɒnʃ(i)ə/; Greek: διπρωτός diprotos, meaning "two front" and οδοντος odontos meaning "teeth") are a large order of about 120 marsupial mammals including the kangaroos, wallabies, possums, koala, wombats, and many others. Extinct diprotodonts include the rhinoceros-sized Diprotodon, and Thylacoleo, the so-called "marsupial lion".
