Meet Our Male Koalas
Find out more about our resident male koalas at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo on Darling Harbour, Sydney.

"Jay Gatsby" has a high white collar of fur around his
neck that makes him look as if he is always in a suit. With
this suave pattern of fur, Jay is the "ladies man" of the
colony and is the oldest male at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo.
Jay can often be seen in the foyer exhibit of WILD LIFE Sydney
Born in November 2008 to mum Faith and dad Angus.
Jack enjoys sitting at the top of the highest perch within Gum
Tree Valley. He is a very messy eater, making him easily
recognisable as he often has gum leaf stained fur around his
His penchant for smiling has also resulted in him being
nicknamed the world's happiest koala!

He is the the attention-seeker of our koala colony at WILD LIFE
Sydney Zoo. Blinky Bill loves nothing more than sitting on the
perch closest to our visitors, attrracting attention by
striking a pose. This koala thinks he's a celebrity and when he was
young, Blinky Bill even appeared on television and since then, he
can't get enough camera time!
Blinky Bill got his name due to having only one eye but that
does not keep him from being the dominant koala in the colony.
Born in February 2011 to dad Bob and mum Samara.
Aaron is a very cheeky koala and as a baby, he would
stand up to the big boys of the colony but still be very
friendly to our little koala joey Bruce.
Currently at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo, Aaron is starting to bellow a
lot which is entertaining for visitors at the Zoo!
Born in the spring of 2012 to mum Elle and Dad
Bruce, WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo's most recent male koala joey, is on
his way to becoming one of the biggest and toughest koalas in
the colony! Right now, Zoo goers can spot Bruce climbing his
first trees and learning how to take care of himself with the boys
at Koala Encounters. If you are looking for an adorable and cuddly
koala photo, Bruce is your boy!
