Koalas, like most animals, are not often characterised as "seductive", but a picture captured by a part time photographer in the Gold Coast has people reconsidering.
Ross Long, 27, captured the boudoir styled snap at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary after he noticed the koala was "positioned in a seductive manner as if to say 'I'm ready for action.'"

"There were other female koalas nearby, so I guess this is his way of letting them know he was indeed ready," Mr Long told The Daily Mail.
"He looked more chilled than a Friday night of Netflix and chill. Perhaps this is explains why chlamydia is such an issue in the koala world?"
The magnificent marsupial has made waves across social media, with people commenting about his provocative pose
"No doubt this guy is sexier than I'll ever be".
However, not everyone was convinced his animal magnetism was safe to be around.
"Do NOT go near him lady koalas. He almost certainly has chlamydia."
