Give a big Aussie welcome to Kirrhi and Dane, two new cuddly additions to Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo. Find the 2 year old koalas in Wallaroo Station alongside Wallaby Walkabout, also home to two yellow-footed rock wallabies. Both are marsupials, meaning they carry their young in a pouch. A koala can spend up to 20 hrs/day sleeping socializing or eating their favorite diet of eucalyptus leaves the rest of the day. Come see just how cute our newest residents are!
