Koalas spend a massive 19 hours a day sleeping off a diet of tough and toxic eucalypt leaves. However, they make up for this indolence by packing the remaining five hours with sex, punch ups and misadventure.
Narrated by Shane Jacobson (Time of Our Lives, Kenny), Koalas Slow Life In The Fast Lane showcases the amazing dynamics within one extended family of koalas, told from the point of view of its youngest member, newborn joey Bruce.
Follow Bruce over seven months as he acrobatically braves the world outside the pouch, a world where his mother is harassed by three different suitors and where danger in the forms of cars, dogs and disease is ever present.
Koalas Slow Life In The Fast Lane reveals the conflicts and dangers facing a not-so sleepy koala colony. It also explores how urbanisation is impacting on the intricate workings of the colony and how this iconic Australian animal is struggling to survive.
Koalas Slow Life In The Fast Lane is an animal soap opera full of conflict, intrigue, and drama.
