The koala, a small Australian marsupial, looks just like a toy teddy bear.
Koalas ares not really bears; they are marsupials, or pouched mammals.
Koalas are largely sedentary and sleep up to 20 hours a day.
The koala’s name is an aboriginal term meaning “no water.” He is appropriately named because the koala never drinks water in his entire life.
The koala spends almost all his time in eucalyptus trees, continually munching the tasty leaves.
Koalas smell like cough drops.
You know what koalas eat besides eucalyptus leaves? Gravel!
Australia’s furry firefighter is called “Smoky the Koala.”
Where does the custom of toasting come from? In Greece during the sixth century B.C., a host, after the wine was poured, raised his cup for all to see and drank — to prove it wasn’t poisoned.
