  Have you seen a koala?
The koala is one of Australia’s most loved and iconic animals. Though often called the koala "bear," this cuddly animal is not a bear at all; it is a marsupial, or pouched mammal. Koalas have two thumbs on their front paws - to help them climb, to hold onto the tree and to grip their food. Koalas are mostly nocturnal animals. This means that they sleep in the daytime, and move around and feed mainly at night. The koalas' fur is different in different parts of Australia. In the southern parts of Australia it is longer and shaggier than in the north, in order to keep them warm in the cold southern winters. MORE »
