The Koala Bear


Ta Da! The sleeping koala in all its glory. Just look at the action. Oh well, being cute makes up for lack of vigour. I didn't get the photo's I wanted because of the bright light outside. I will post a close up tomorrow.

Koalas aren't bears as many people are led to believe. They aren't even related to bears. The koala is related to the kangaroo and the wombat. The koala is a mammal. The reason the koala is called a koala bear is because the koala looks like a teddy bear. The koala's scientific name is Phasclarctos cinereus.
