A pair of koalas on loan from the San Diego Zoo went on display Tuesday at the Washington Park Zoo in Portland.
Tuckoni and Ouraka are in Portland thanks to a San Diego Zoo program that brings exposure to the animals, and helps raise funds in an attempt to save the marsupials native habitat in Australia.
The koalas are also getting a taste of Australian home cooking Portland style. Eucalyptus leaves from down under are being shipped especially for the auspicious Aussie guests.
