PALM COVE, AUSTRALIA - DECEMBER 15: Santa couldnt resist a cuddle from his little helper, a koala named Forest from Cairns Tropical Zoo in Queensland, Australia. Queensland wildlife sanctuaries are the primary places in the world where people can hold a koala. Koalas are native to Australia. A koala baby is called a joey (not a cub) and when born, is around the size of a jelly bean, is blind and hairless and weighs around 0.5 grams (0.02 oz).  The koala joey wont emerge from its mothers pouch until its around six months old. (Photo by Mark Kolbe/Getty Images for Tourism Queensland)
