the next generation by koalagardens

the next generation

Koalas are marsupials, so their young are born tiny and crawl into the pouch to develop. Finally we can see a lovely pouch bulge on Maxine - the next generation of hope! Thank you for the awesome comments and questions on my photos.
Brilliant position Maxine...Fav

Very laid back nice to show your bulge Maxine

So wonderful, looking forward to follow this story!

Looking forward to following the progession of Maxine's joey.
March 23rd, 2019  
She looks wonderful!
March 23rd, 2019  
Cute

Great capture of Maxine looking quite comfy

No wonder she is enjoying a good stretch. It looks a lot like a technique we used to use to shinny up what are called “chimneys” on a Yosemite granite cliff.

A koala in a recliner :-) Great capture!

So wonderful to stretch out - she looks so comfortable
March 23rd, 2019  
Picture of perfect contentment!

I bet that feels good on her back! When will we see the baby?
March 23rd, 2019  
how cool! will be watching for more baby activity :)
March 23rd, 2019  
Maxine looks so relaxed ...and preggers! Can't wait to meet the baby.
March 23rd, 2019  
Awesome shot
March 23rd, 2019  
She looks totally content in her relaxed position. Nice shot.

The koala`s alway`s ameze me with the choice of relexing places.
March 23rd, 2019  
She does look quite relaxed there (how I can't relate to!) and how exciting to see her little pouch - will be awaiting a new koala to your photos.

She looks strong pushing against the tree - an exercise in itself !

She looks comfortable
March 24th, 2019  
Great shot. She does look a lot more comfortable than some of the other poses.:-)

Don't disturb me I`m sooo comfortable

@koalagardens do the females have a joey each year? Are last year’s girls still too young to be moms?
March 24th, 2019  
@kchuk pretty much every year Elyse. Sometimes they get to miss one year, but I think it's not too often.
The girls reach sexual maturity around 2 - 2.5 years old, so Dewdrop and Phoenix get to just hang around this year and be pre-teens. I wish we would see Stella drop back in as I am betting she has bulge this year - I suspect she made her home range on a property nearby but we haven't seen her in a while. Wouldn't that be a nice little treat if she pops back over with the joey out during winter! ahhhh a girl can dream :)

How exciting.....Maxine certainly looks laid back...or maybe she has an aching back...Great capture.
March 24th, 2019  
A wonderful capture of this happy and relaxed mum to be. I was not aware that Koalas also have a pouch! Another lesson learned on 365 ;-)

@happysnaps I'm thinking this posture is more about comfort - taking pressure off the belly and easing the back than anything :) well spotted :)

@ludwigsdiana yes, they are related to the wombat and kangaroo :) I often find out all kinds of things here, such fun!
March 24th, 2019  
I'm currently sitting on the couch in a very similar position - with no baby to report of! Instant FAV
March 24th, 2019  
She looks comfortable :)
March 24th, 2019  
Awww she looks so cute and comfy there!
This brought a smile to my face!
March 24th, 2019  
What a great shot. She looks so comfortable.
March 24th, 2019  
@kklinck I would imagine around June-July we will see joey first starting poking a head out of that pouch :) not too far away really!
March 24th, 2019  
@365karly1 it will be exciting to see another generation! Of course she isn't actually preggers - the pregnancy is only 35 days long and she would have given birth around the new year to a tiny unformed pinkie which crawled up into her pouch and is in there drinking milk. So she is a nursing mum - nature is amazing :)
March 24th, 2019  
Haha, lovely captured laziness :)
March 24th, 2019  
Fantastic! Wonderful mummy in a relaxing pose!
March 24th, 2019  
Very cool! I learn something new every day. How exciting. :)
