By Daniel Bang Koalas & Eucalyptus trees/ Interdepending & Adapting
Introduction Koalas are mainly from Australia (eastern side and southern). Koalas have a Symbiotic relationship with Eucalyptus trees. Koalas eat Eucalyptus leaves and if there weren’t any Eucalyptus leaves then the Koalas would be hungry in the wild. Symbiotic means living together and helping each other. Koalas are cute and fuzzy; I think that they like their habitat -rainforest- rather than at a house. There are 4 main types of symbiosis: Commensalism, Parasitism, Mutualism and Mimicry.
About Koalas <ul><li>Koalas are not bears, they are marsupials (which is a special species), or a pouched mammal. When the Aborigines found the koalas, they named the koalas the Cullawines, Koolahs etc.. </li></ul><ul><li>After a baby Koala is born, the mom koala keeps the baby koala in the pouch for approximately 6-7 months, then it clutches his/her mum’s back and rests (for better health, and strength when adults). </li></ul>

Has Massive ears to hear well from far distance. Big wings to fly. Thick tail (snake) to strangle the prey. Has gorilla arms to carry heavy weapons and build big houses (shelter). This creature’s habitat is a rain forest. His features adapt to it very well. He has big gorilla arms which will help him from the prickly branches and a oily tail which will make it easier to slither across the muddy ground .
How Humans adapt to there habitat <ul><li>Humans have the ability to construct things and have the smartest brain in the whole world. Humans have oxygen and plants which inhale carbon dioxide and exhale oxygen. This makes the earth a habitat for humans. But humans don’t take care of the earth which causes global warming, which makes the earth hurt. </li></ul>Don’t let me die Humans!!
