Even the animal kingdom is getting in on the selfie craze. 

Three koalas at the Wild Life Sydney Zoo in Darling Harbour, Australia, are achieving Internet fame today after a string of their selfies hit the Web.

The zoo staff set up a Sony camera on a tree in the koala enclosure earlier this week, and it didn't take long for koalas Bruce, Aaron and Bill to start showing the camera some love.

“The guys have shown us today that they are certainly not camera shy,” the zoo said on its site. “Even a koala can take a great selfie.”
