    Photo Gallery > Australian Wildlife > Koalas

The koala is a small bear-like, tree-dwelling, herbivorous marsupial which averages about 9kg (20lb) in weight. It’s fur is thick and usually ash grey with a tinge of brown in places. The koala gets it’s name from an ancient Aboriginal word meaning "no drink" because it receives over 90% of it’s hydration from the Eucalyptus leaves (also known as gum leaves) it eats, and only drinks when ill or times when there is not enough moisture in the leaves. ie during droughts etc. The koala is the only mammal, other than the Greater Glider and Ringtail Possum, which can survive on a diet of eucalytus leaves.
