Koala Trivia:

  • Tree-dwelling marsupial of coastal eastern Australia.
  • 24-33 inches long and weighs 30 lbs.
  • Sometimes called “koala bear”, but not a member of the bear family.
  • Feeds selectively on leaves of eucalyptus trees. This diet poor in nutrients, providing little spare energy. Spends long hours (up to 19 hours a day) sitting or sleeping in trees, exposed to the elements but insulated by thick fur.
  • Generally solitary.
  • Mating occurs between December and March, the Southern Hemisphere’s summer.
  • Births are single, after a gestation of 35 days. Twins very rare. The baby, called a joey, is only 1” long at birth. Peaks its head out of the pouch after 5 months. After weaning, the joey emerges from pouch and clings to mother’s back until a year old. Young females disperse to nearby areas at this time; young males often stay in mother’s home range for 2-3 years.
  • Lives 15 years in the wild; a bit longer in captivity.
  • In the 1920’s and 30’s, killed in large number for their fur, and numbers dwindled from several million to a few hundred thousand. Today, they are again widespread.
  • As with most native Australian animals, cannot be kept as a pet without a permit.
