The Koala in Australia
The Koala is not a bear, but is an Australian marsupial mammal, which means it has a pouch and suckles its young.
The adult Koala weighs between 5 and 10 kilos, and has a normal lifespan of between 10 and 14 years in the wild.
There is more to come on this page, but please feel free to add anything about Koala’s in the comment section.
Koalas in the Redland area of SE Queensland:
The Redlands is home to one of the most significant urban koala population in Australia because of its proximity to the city.
Many people associate koalas with bushland but koalas are found in our urban areas. You can see koalas in our parks, street trees, schoolyards and backyards. Even the Cleveland CBD has its own population of koalas!
