Many children can mimic the sounds of popular animals but most of us wouldn’t know how to ‘speak’ koala. With my demonstration and tips, you will now be able to play the wildlife dice-game in full, with your kids.
With practice you will also be able to grab the attention of those sleepy koalas and make the most of any potential photo shoots. Read on and find out how!
This is my first vlog of sorts. It’s not a very attractive introduction; koalas don’t make beautiful sounds that you want to hum along to. Their call can scare people at night and evoke images of a wild supernatural-like creature outside the window.
I’ve been doing it for years – not frightening people outside their window, but bellowing like a koala. My first occupation, out of university, was a koala handler and bellowing came with the job.
Before you go ahead and click play, my apologies for talking fast and fumbling through a few sentences. We had tried filming a few times prior but my twinkles and Miss possum wanted part in the action and it was far too distracting. This was our last shot at it before we had to leave.
(Mother Natured was previously called Wildlife Fun 4 Kids)
Here is Miss Possum making the sound.
I hope you’re spewing bellows out at the computer and having a little giggle at the same time. Let me know how you and your children go at it.
