Koala: what i learned about it today
Pictured above: A Koala
Koala - derived from the Aboriginal word, meaning "the animal that does not drink". Infact Koalas do drink at times and get additional water from juicy plants they eat. Peculiar feature is that 1st two fingers are opposite to the remaining 3 which makes it easy for the animal to grip trees. Eucalyptus leaves (known as gum tree in Australia) are main diet.
