Koalas are often referred to as Koala Bears, but they’re actually marsupials, not bears.
Koalas are native to Australia.
Koalas are nocturnal so are mainly active at night.
Koalas live in eucalypt forests and eat gum leaves which are usually toxic to other animals.
Koalas don’t usually need to drink as they get moisture from eucalyptus leaves. They only need to drink water during a drought or on extremely hot days.
Koalas have very sharp claws that help them climb high into the trees.
