    The koalas have a VERY firm grip, as they're used to holding on tightly to the branches they sit in. Their fur is very soft, and their smell is not like animal smell at all. They do smell like the eucalypt leaves they eat! Slightly like cough drops :D.

    Our cat looks like this when we hold her against her will, though ;).

    Adorable. I want one!

    You have a 50-500mm lens? I didn't even know that range existed so I just had to go look it up. Four lbs? I bet that gets awfully heavy!

    It's a beast of a lens. I only use it on occasion, but it is kind of fun to play with.

    I keep checking the price of that lens on various shops websites to see if it is getting any cheaper, and it isn't ;-)
