Australia’s Most Loved Animal, the Koala, Makes its ‘Selfie’ Debut

Three of Australia's most iconic and loved creatures showcased how on trend koalas are, using the Sony QX Lens-Style camera to take their very own selfies at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo.

Power in their paws

After years of being the subject of so many visitors' photographs, Sony Australia finally put the power in their paws. Boys club Bruce, Aaron and Bill captured some of their best angles, showing us that with the right camera, even a koala can take a great selfie.

Keepers at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo were surprised at how much the koalas enjoyed their moment in the limelight, with the camera attached to a tree in the koala's enclosure.

"The majority of WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo visitors either take photos of or with the resident koalas. It was great to do something where the koalas themselves get to own their moment in the spotlight", said Kylie Hackshall, Mammal Keeper at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo. "The guys have shown us today that they are certainly not camera-shy and have loved having the Sony QX camera in their enclosure. Now we just have to help them choose their best filter!"
