Australian Teddy Bear

Many human beings consider me an animal that’s beautiful. I am one of those mammals classified as a marsupial. Some people call me an “Australian teddy bear”. However, “koala” is the proper moniker I wear. This continent down under is my native home. To other places in the world I do not want to roam. All of you zookeepers, please don’t take me away. Here in this land you call “Australia” is where I want to stay. Robert Pettit January 24, 2013
