Origin of name:
Two other male koalas in the area were named Tim Tam and Vegemite – both popular Australian foods. Anzac Biscuits are much loved, and he was first named on Anzac Day.
How long known:
We first met Anzac in 2007. We watched him take over the home ranges of dominant males Vegemite, then Merle* – combining two male ranges into one super territory.
*Merle appears in this National Geographic video (he is the koala walking on the ground)
How often seen:
In 2016 Anzac was seen on 102 days, which is quite often.
