I don't see any biting so hopefully, they are playing.

They are definitely fighting. That is how koalas fight. Koalas don't play like that, they don't have the metabolism and energy resources to play that way but they will exhaust all their energy resources when they are fighting. They are master wrestlers in the animal kingdom and they ARE biting, also kicking, scratching fur out as well as grappling and trying to strangle each other breathless in choke holds using their arms and their jaws.

Koala males fighting over mating territory will become so enraged and focused on the fight they'll completely ignore hazards like traffic, people, other animals and anything else near them or trying to interfere and break up their fight.

Here, check these images out, read the article and scroll down to the wrestling koalas and see the grappling techniques that fighting koalas are noted for: Street Fighting Koalas: Nature's Lesser-Known Grappling Masters | FIGHTLAND

I think it looks funny how koalas wrestle and kangaroos box with their arms and kick-box with their feet ....... but they can all do some really serious damage to each other, which is not funny.

Zoisite nailed it. I saw video a few years ago of koala fighting and I could not believe how vicious they are. They are also quite vocal at times which adds en element to the intensity. Yikes!
