Fun Facts About Koalas
- Koalas live naturally in the eucalyptus forests of eastern Australia.
- Their fur is grey with a cream-colored chest.
- Koalas grow to be about 2 to 2 1/2 feet long and weigh about 30 pounds.
- Koalas are marsupials, like kangaroos, wombats, Tasmanian devils, sugar gliders, and opossums. (So, they are not bears.)
- Joeys are baby Koalas. And after they are born, they crawl into their mother’s pouch like other marsupial babies.
- Koalas consume about 2 pounds of eucalyptus leaves each day!
- And eucalyptus leaves are poisonous to you, but the koala has a special digestive organ that helps break down the tough, poisonous leaves so he is not harmed.
- Koalas and sloths share a love for sleeping! Koalas can sleep up to 18 hours a day!
One More Fact about Koalas
Deforestation, drought, and bushfires have destroyed 80% of the eucalyptus forests. Consequently, this means the Koala’s habitat is under threat. Thankfully, Koalas are protected by law and not classified as endangered yet.
