Kim Kardashian revisited some wild memories for “Throwback Thursday” this week.
The 32-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians reality star, in honor of this week’s “Throwback Thursday,” shared a photo from a 2007 visit to Sydney. There, she and her sister Khloe went to the zoo for an up-close and personal encounter with a koala … a little too close as Kardashian found out. In the photo, the “feisty” Koala is depicted clawing at Kardashian’s long brunette locks. But judging by the smile on her face, she didn’t take it too personally.
The incident was in response to Kardashian’s attempt at a playful photo op, in which she tried to cuddle with the Marsupial, but was sadly rebuffed. She noted that the koala had a petrified look on his face to begin with and was likely unsurprised by the response.
“This was on a trip to Australia with Khloe back in 2007 to present at the MTV Music Video Awards,” Kardashian wrote in a blog post titled, “Too Close for Comfort.” She added, “We went to the Sydney Zoo and I got a little too close to the Koala bear and he tried to claw my head, lol. Cute, but feisty! Xo”
