How Koalas Actually Sound Is Surprising a Lot of People

Someone posted a video of what koalas sound like, and, well…educate yourselves, because there’s a 99.8% chance they do not sound at all like you’re expecting.

They look so sweet, they should squeak and purr, no?

No. No, they do not do that.

Take a look.

The people of the internet had some feelings about it…

Apparently, they make a bunch of different sounds, and this one was a mating call – he must have really been interested in whoever was holding that camera.

Taronga Zoo Sydney cleared up some of the confusion on YouTube, saying, “Koalas might look cute, but they can produce bellowing sounds during mating season that have been compared to a donkey braying and a frog vomiting!”
