Just like kangaroos, koalas are marsupials (pronounced mar-SOO-pee-ulz), which means they have a pocket of skin, called a pouch, on their stomach where they carry their babies, called joeys.
When they are little, joeys drink their mother's milk and eat a soft material called pap.
Besides spending fourteen hours per day chewing and digesting bamboos, wandering aimlessly, sitting in trance and wiggling their big butts against trunks or branches compose the majority of a panda’s usual day.
Amusingly, if the branches snap out of blue attributing to their chubby and cumbersome bodies, which is by the way of great possibility under most circumstances, these cherubic angels will just look around with their innocent eyes as if they totally have no idea what is going on.
The bacteria that they got from eating pap helps them break down the leaves without getting sick from the poison.
They also have a special organ in their body that helps them safely break down and digest the leaves.
When they are fully grown, they weigh about 9-20 pounds.
Koalas are sometimes called koala bears, but they aren't actually bears!
The only time they come down from a tree is if they are moving to another tree that has better leaves.
Koalas are Australian animals that live in trees, have thick, gray fur, sharp claws and keep their babies in a pouch.
