Zookeepers at Australia's Dreamworld Wildlife Experience have their hands full after the birth of 11 koalas. The adorable babies, including this one who was photographed on July 25, will continue to live and grow in their mothers' pouches for another six months. Dreamworld is relying on the public to come up with names for the 11 joeys, and one idea that's currently in the running is to name each baby after a global currency.
