The Easter Bunny was generous this year, as always, but there was something new in the basket,er…bowl?
Koala Fish– I bet you have never heard that one before.
Me either. Extremely rare, the Koala Fish, and having been completely unaware of the existence of such a fish, but always curious to know as much as possible, and also of course, to make sure I don’t inadvertently kill it, I did a little research.
Here is what I have come upwith so far, but from the looks of it, there is quite a bit more to learn.
Koala Fish is the kind of fish that makes you believe that fish really are friends – not food.
Cute, cuddly and not smelly. In fact, the Koala fish has a very pleasant smell. Even after flopping around for a bit. All three in one fish. It doesn’t get too much better than that as far as fish go…
Playful too. Once you catch a Koala Fish’s eye, tag is a favorite game and the Koala Fish enjoys playing til you are flustered. Another favorite game is to come from behind and pull your hair. Not so hard it hurts, just a satisfying little tug that lets you know, in no uncertain terms, the Koala Fish is there. And according to another source, it enjoys ball games, such as Volleyball, on a regular basis.
While the Koala Fish is a solid, grounded, down -to-earth sort, unlike the more flighty sun or clown fish, it is intrigued by the more flighty fish, or so it would seem, and isn’t easily spooked. In fact things that would send other fish under rocks and out of sight, don’t seem to faze the Koala Fish.
It is unclear to researchers whether this is because it is indeed unfazed, or good at appearances, but all indicators point to truly unfazed, in fact, open to things that lesser fish dart away from.
Also favorites of the Koala Fish are shiny and even glittery things, which will hold it’s attention and keep it on its toes and laughing.
Well… fish laughing of course but that is important for the overall happiness and sense of contentment and well-being of the Koala Fish.
I enjoy fish, and have had a few in my life, but I try to stay away from them because you never really know what they are going to do and often end up flushed down the toilet anyways. It’s just too hard to get attached and then watch them go.
All in all though, I am happy to have discovered the Koala Fish…or maybe the Koala Fish found me.. little unclear since it was the Easter Bunny.
I am intrigued and although there isn’t much written about the Koala Fish, I am sure there is a lot I can learn by observing and interacting with it.
Cute like the description says, but more than that, a well-built, muscular fish that looks like it can handle pretty much anything. I could watch it all day long. Looks….tasty even.
Fish are Friends not Food… my Koala Fish reminds me of that so it will be safe from me.
I really hope it doesn’t bite me though. Silly fish….
