Koalas are marsupials, which means they carry their babies in a special pouch. Their furry ears, button noses, and round faces make them one of the most endearing animals in the animal kingdom. Contrary to popular belief, koalas are not bears. They are tree-dwelling animals, spending most of their time in eucalyptus trees. Eucalyptus leaves are their primary food source, and they munch on about a pound of leaves every day! Koalas have a special adaptation that helps them consume eucalyptus leaves. Their digestive system can break down the toxins in these leaves, which are harmful to many other animals. It's like they have a built-in superpower!
