Ms Rubiah Ismail is there to handle the koalas. She took training from the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary in Brisbane to care for these special guests. According to her, the koalas are not weighty. While the males can be up to 8kg, on the other hand females are just 4 to 6kg. Sharing her experience with these loveable creatures, Rubiah says that they are trained to sit on left arm and love to have eucalyptus.

She is there at the zoo to care for the four koalas. This love for animals is her passion. She has been doing this from her childhood. She has already worked with a number of animals, including the otters, penguins, zebras, gibbons and many more. Koalas are a new challenge for her and she is doing it well!
