Didn’t think so!
Well, today we’re going to be learning how to do exactly that.
Many children can mimic the sounds of popular animals, but most of us wouldn’t know how to ‘speak’ koala. Their sounds are rather infrequent (considering they sleep for most of the day!) so it’s not very often you hear a true-to-life koala sound.
With my demonstration and tips, you will soon 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 to find out how!
Koalas don’t make beautiful sounds that you want to hum along to. In fact, 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 learning to bellow just came with the job. Let’s see how it’s done.
A real koala bellow
Here’s what a real koala bellow sounds like.
How to bellow like a koala
I bellow by sucking the air in and breaking it up in my throat. It’s not like a burp at all.
Now you and your children try!
Meanwhile, take a look at a real koala and how it bellows. See if you can replicate 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. I hope you enjoyed how to bellow like a koala – there’s really nothing quite like it!
