  • 5. Range of Habitat
    • Coastal regions of South Australia (Queensland, New South Wales, and Victoria)
    Now, the koala is a protected species. Sanctuaries flourish in Victoria and Queensland. They are being reintroduced to South Australia where they had become locally extinct.
  • 6. Food Source
    • Eucalyptus Leaves
    • There are more than 100 species of eucalyptus trees, but Koalas only feed on 12 of them.
  • 7. How the Koala Climbs
    • To climb, a koala clasps a tree trunk between its forepaws and draws its hind legs up together in a series of small rapid jumps.
  • 8. Fun Facts
    • Koalas are Nocturnal
    • A koala never has to drink anything, because it gets all its liquid from eucalyptus leaves.
    • A newborn koala is only the size of a lima bean. Its hind legs are barely formed, but its forelimbs and claws are relatively well developed. It drags itself to the pouch by following a trail of saliva laid down by its mother.
    • Koalas are excellent swimmers, because they need to cross rivers to survive heavy flooding.
    • Many koalas are killed in sanctuaries because they are run over by cars.
