The Koala

We’re going down under for today’s Animal A Day feature! The Koala is one of Australia’s mascots, because of their teddy bear like features, they are sometimes mistaken to have some relatives in the bear family, in fact, it’s a Marsupial, a pouched mammal which will catty their young in a pouch very similar to a kangaroo.

Location: Australia
Diet: Herbivore
Lifespan: 20 years in the wild
Interesting fact: A koalas main food source, Eucalyptus leads are poisonous, but due to the koalas special digestive system they can eat eucalyptus leaves without any severe side effects.

With our game featuring a rescue and rehabilitation aspect, we enjoyed this short video for a television series called Koala hospital.
