The Koala is not a bear...it is a calm, quiet, slow-moving marsupial. The baby is born when it is still not properly formed. It climbs up and into its mother's pouch where it stays for six months until it is big enough to start feeding itself.
Koalas are found only in certain species of Eucalyptus trees in Australia. Eucalyptus oil is used to make cold cures. Both smell and taste of Eucalyptus oil is very strong and pleasant. It is also excellent as an aid for removing some marks from fabric.
Because koalas eat only eucalyptus, they taste very nasty, subsequently other animals do not hunt them.
If ever you consider cuddling a koala, I would suggest wearing a plastic apron as they have absolutely no consideration for humanity when nature calls. Better still...leave them to sleep their days away in peace.
