Did you know?

Though often called the "koala bear," this cuddly animal is not a bear at all; it is a marsupial, or pouched mammal. After birth, a female carries a single baby in its pouch for about six months. When the infant emerges, it rides on its mother's back or clings to her belly, accompanying her everywhere until it is about a year old.  Koalas need a lot of space—about 100 trees per animal—a pressing problem as Australia's woodlands continue to shrink.
