The Koala eats eucalyptus leaves. It can eat up to one to two
pounds of these leaves. Here's another mysterious thing about the Koala; the
Koala dosen't drink water, because the eucalyptus leaves gives it enough
water. The Koala's shelter is the eucalyptus tree. The trees give them their
shelter from their leaves and branches. The Koala lives in the zoo;
therefore, the Koala wounld need the right amount of space, about a large
cage fit for an animal in the prairie. They would need the space, so they
could wonder around in the trees.
Koalas are found in South Eastern Australia and has been described as an "ash
coloured pouched bear". But they are not a bear they are a mammal (
meaning they feed their young on Milk) and are a Marsupial (meaning they
carry their developing young mostly in a pouch) The name koala, comes from
the Aboriginal saying that means "no drink". The Koala obtains
enough moisture from the eucalypt leaves that it lives on.
