What is a koala? The koala is a small bear-like, tree-dwelling, herbivorous marsupial which averages about 9kg (20lb) in weight. Its fur is thick and usually ash grey with a tinge of brown in places. The koala gets its name from an ancient Aboriginal word meaning "no drink" because it receives over 90% of its hydration from the Eucalyptus leaves (also known as gum leaves) it eats, and only drinks when ill or times when there is not enough moisture in the leaves. ie during droughts etc. The koala is the only mammal, other than the Greater Glider and Ringtail Possum, which can survive on a diet of eucalyptus leaves. 'Habitat' refers to the types of bushland that koalas like to live in. They are found in a range of habitats, from coastal islands and tall eucalypt forests to low woodlands inland. Koalas today are found in Queensland , New South Wales , Victoria and South Australia . Their range extends from the Atherton Tableland west of Cairns in Qld to islands off the coast of Victoria and South Australia in the south, and west to central and western Qld, NSW and Victoria. Koalas live in societies, just like humans, so they need to be able to come into contact with other koalas. It is because of this they need to have areas of suitable eucalypt forest which are large enough to support a healthy koala population and to allow for expansion by maturing young koalas. Koalas are highly territorial and in stable breeding groups, individual members of koala society maintain their own "home range" areas.

HABITAT: Koalas prefer to live in eucalyptus forests, coastal islands, and low woodlands. FOOD: Koalas consume eucalyptus leaves and bark from 12 different eucalyptus tree species.

Like other young marsupials, baby koalas (called joeys) live in their mother's backwards-facing pouch for months. The koala is one of the few animals that has fingerprints (other animals with fingerprints include many

The koala (Phascolarctos cinereus) is an arboreal herbivorous marsupial native to Australia , and the only extant representative of the family Phascolarctidae The koala is found in coastal regions of eastern and southern Australia, from Adelaide to the southern part of Cape York Peninsula . Populations also extend for considerable distances inland in regions with enough moisture to support suitable woodlands . The koalas of South Australia were largely exterminated during the early part of the 20th century, but the state has since been repopulated with Victorian stock. The koala is not found in Tasmania or Western Australia
The word koala comes from the Dharuk gula . Although the vowel /u/ was originally written in the Latin alphabet as "oo" (in spellings such as coola or koolah ), it was changed to "oa" possibly due to an error.

The Koala Bear The Koala is one of Australia's best known animals. It is an icon represented when promoting Australia to the tourist industry, and in general people adore these cuddly creatures. There are two species, the Southern Koalas and the Northern Koalas. Koalas are often referred to as a Koala bear. However they are not a bear. The name Koala comes from an Aboriginal word. It means "no drink", as Koalas get enough fluids through the eucalyptis leaves they feed on. Koalas are found all over east Australia, mainly in the south east. The male Koalas are larger than the females. Southern koalas are larger than Northern koalas. They have a grey soft furred coat, with a white chest.

    Animal Face Off Videos Koala, an Australian marsupial (animal that suckles its young in a pouch). The koala lives in trees and feeds almost entirely on eucalyptus leaves. Its sturdy, tailless body is about 24 inches (60 cm) long. The koala has large, rounded, shaggy ears. Its fur is mostly ashy gray. The koala has strong claws which it uses for climbing. The large toe of each foot and the first two fingers of each forepaw are opposable. Since the early 1900's, the number of koalas has greatly decreased, mainly because of loss of habitat. The koala has shaggy ears, gray fur, and strong claws for climbing. Which Marsupial Looks Like A Bear? The koala (koh AH luh) looks like a teddy bear, but it is not a bear at all. Koalas are marsupials. Like kangaroos, female koalas have pouches where young koalas feed and grow. Unlike kangaroos, however, koalas have pouches that open to the rear of the body. Special muscles around the opening of the pouch can be closed to hold a baby inside. This way, young koalas remain safe as their mothers move around. Koala mothers and their young enjoy a close relationship. A baby koala lives in its mother’s pouch for about seven months. Then it rides on its mother’s back for the next six months. The baby koala even sleeps in this “piggyback” position. If a baby koala gets separated from its mother, it will give a loud cry. The baby will cry until it is reunited with its mother.

"I wish no living thing to suffer pain" Percy Bysshe Shelley "A universe is indeed to be pitied whose dominating inhabitants are so unconscious and so ethically embryonic that they make life a commodity, mercy a disease, and systematic massacre a pastime and a profession" J.H. Moore "...Analogously, suppose extraterrestrial beings of a higher intelligence than ours were to invade our planet. Would they be morally justified in destroying and eating us simply because we did not measure up to their levels of intelligence and they like the taste of our flesh?" Philip Kapleau
"If a man is not to stifle his human feelings, he must practise kindness towards animals, because he who is hard to animals becomes hard also in his dealings with men. We can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals" Kant
"Very few people question it is an act of kindness to put an animal to death if it is injured beyond hope of a pain-free future; or that it is better to neuter our pets than allow thousands of unwanted litters to be born. But mention it might be better for a breeding sow in a farrowing crate if she had never been born, and you will be met with chants of "Any life is better than no life". Humans have an odd way of justifying activities that bring them pleasure, or profit, or both" Bronwen Humphries
