Ronnie Wood cuddled up to a koala in Australia yesterday (24.10.14).

The Rolling Stones legend, 67, took to his Twitter account to post a photograph of him holding the cute fluffy creature, named Eddie, at Adelaide Zoo, before he and his band mates took to the stage to perform at the Adelaide Oval stadium tonight (25.10.14).

Alongside the snap of the marsupial, Ronnie wrote: ''Me with my pal Eddie #Australia #Adelaide (sic).''

However, Eddie wasn't the only animal Ronnie was able to get up close and personal with at the wildlife centre as he also held a Pygmy Blue-tongue Lizard.

He wrote next to the photo of him and the little reptile: ''Met an endangered Pygmy Bluetongue Lizard today. Only found in grasslands in South Australia #Tiliquaadelaidensis (sic).''

Ronnie touched down in Australia on October 15, before being joined by his band mates Sir Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, and Charlie Watts last Saturday (18.10.14), in time for their first gig in front of 50,000 fans in Adelaide, South Australia, tonight.

The group will now travel to Western Australia for their two concerts in Perth, then to Melbourne, before making their way to Sydney in New South Wales and Brisbane in Queensland at the beginning of November.

They will then round up their gigs in Auckland in New Zealand on November 22.

The rockers were forced to postpone the Australian leg of their tour '14 On Fire' in March after Sir Mick's longterm partner L'Wren Scott tragically killed herself.
