Sam the scam: Sam the Koala is an impostor!
On 12 February a paper was published that for the first time revealed that the stuffed “Sam the Koala” sitting in the National Museum of Victoria is an impostor or fake.
Yes, the original water-drinking Koala is a different animal!
That was a male Koala, later renamed “Bob”, who had been captive as far back as 2006!
