Mildly interesting.
19 September 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

A few weeks ago, I watched an episode of "Nature" about the ubiquitous raccoon. Tonight I watched another episode that reminded me of this--though it was about the koala instead. How was this similar? Both shows specifically focus on the animals that live in the city (specifically Brisbane in the state of Queensland) and discusses how they adapt. However, the koala is not nearly as adaptive or successful, so these researchers are working very hard to keep the koalas from harm.

While koalas are very cute, this film does a lot to demystify this. For the first time I can think of, a show is portraying the animal as less than cute---and a bit grumpy. Here you'll hear male koalas make sounds highly reminiscent of pigs and monkeys--mostly as they fight. And, despite a placid demeanor most of the time, much of the film is about the territoriality of these males--who seem to enjoy fighting a lot more than you'd probably suspect. Overall, there isn't anything (other than the nastiness of the males) that was that surprising here but it is a pleasant enough nature documentary.
