#AtoZChallenge – Koala

The koala is often referred to as a “koala bear” which is inaccurate. These marsupials are herbivores and native to Australia – primarily along the east coast.

Their diet consists almost completely of eucalyptus leaves, which also provides them with water.

Koalas sleep about 20 hours a day, leaving them 4 hours to forage for food and other physical activities.
