Animal Notes

Koalas are probably Australia's best known animal. They are closely related to the wombat (basically a wombat who decided to climb a tree) and consequently have a backward (in their case downward) opening pouch. Still frequently misnamed "bear" the only connection they have to real bears is in the disparity between their real life persona and their cute and cuddly toy image. Despite the common belief, koalas do drink and do not spend most of their life in a drugged "high". Their sleepy habit is an essential energy conservation tactic as their eucalypt diet is very low in energy and very high in toxins. Local populations are often diminishing mostly due to habitat loss and fragmentation.
