Become a Guinness World Record

According to NHK News Web Easy, the Koala at zoo in Awaji Island, Hyogo prefecture, in Japan, became 24 years old on 1st of February last month and has became a Guinness World Record as the longest life among all koalas raised by humans.

This Koala is female and named as [Midori] ,which is green in English, was born in Australia and came to this zoo when she was 6 years old. Midori, if she is a human, could be around 110 years old. However, even now she eats eucalyptus leaves lots and climbs the trees. She loves to be cleaned with a brush.

The staff at the zoo told that “She is very gentle personality and we think of her as our family and from now on we will continue taking care of her properly.”

The previous world record holder was a female koala in Australia and she was 23 years old.
