How did they get to Australia?

How exactly did the koalas get to Australia after the big flood? I thought that Noah landed his ark in the Urartian Mountains. That's in Armenia. Not by Australia. So could someone please explain to me how they got there!! I really don't think that kangaroos could have carried them in there pouches the whole way. How could the kangaroo hop over the ocean?

Easy. They stood on the back of the playpuses, which were much bigger then. MylesP 20:58, 10 January 2008 (EST)
Weren't you going to avoid making silly comments like that? Philip J. Rayment 09:42, 16 January 2009 (EST)

Ridiculous premise...

So Koalas jumped into Kangaroo pouches to make the journey to Australia? Conservapedia is one of the silliest, most ridiculous things on the web. Didn't I give you eyes, ears and hands to experience the world for yourselves? As your Good God Almighty I ask you to resist falling for the idiocy promoted by others. Use your brains and learn from your own experiences. The bible was written and promoted by people in their quest for the domination of others. I had nothing to do with it. So, wake up, smell the roses, use your eyes to see the truth that surrounds you and then use your hands and hearts to build a better future for our planet, your human kind and all the creatures of my creation.


I nominate this for FA (Funny Article) status. I've seen koalas mating on Animal Planet, and imaging a fiercer, more virile version of the same, riding in kangaroos like some kind of marsupial Master Blaster, takes my breath away.--All Fish Welcome 00:36, 18 April 2007 (EDT)

Omigawd. This is very funny! I am going to copy this article before it is changed. Stupidpedia strikes again!--1048247 09:45, 8 May 2007 (EDT)

How did they get to Australia? I'll tell you

Obviously the kangaroos (with the other marsupials in their pouches) climbed on the back of the salt water crocodiles to cross the big flood. The echidnas had to make their own arrangements though as they were too prickly to share a pouch with. Hence the proverb "I can't live with a bunch of pricks like you". —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Dave48 (talk)

Can someone revert the factual explanation of how koalas got from the Middle East to Australia please? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Ferret (talk)

What are you referring to? Philip J. Rayment 10:36, 15 May 2007 (EDT)
There used to be a useful explanation here of how it came to be that koalas migrated from their original home after the flood, to Australia. As that's the sort of thing that Wikipedia bans, it would be great to have it here. Ferret 03:12, 16 May 2007 (EDT)
If you are talking about this deletion, that is a mixture of creationist views and fiction. It would need rewriting before it was put back in. IF that's not what you mean, please show me what bit you do mean. Philip J. Rayment 10:22, 16 May 2007 (EDT)
That's the bit. Obviously it's just a theory - it could never be proven one way or the other. But the bits which are "official" creationist views should go back in if possible. Ferret 02:56, 17 May 2007 (EDT)
As long as there are no evolutionist views in the article, it might be better to leave that out for now. That's not to say that it can't go back at some time in the future. Philip J. Rayment 11:35, 17 May 2007 (EDT)

Pouch Location?

In the first section, marsupial is being defined as an animal which has a pouch on its belly. In the last section, it says that koalas pouches are on their backs. Can someone who knows about this fix this seeming contradiction?-- —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Excal (talk)

It wasn't a contradition, but it was, as you say, a seeming contradiction. "Toward the rear" did not mean "on the back", but (in the case of koalas who tend to be upright clinging to trees), downward. I've altered the article to clarify that. Philip J. Rayment 21:05, 22 November 2007 (EST)

How many hours do they sleep?

The article says both 18 and 20. Wich is it?LowKey 21:58, 15 January 2009 (EST)

Changed to 18 (as per Koala website). Although in fairness, it did originally say "about 20 hours". --KotomiTnandeyanen? 09:49, 16 January 2009 (EST)
