Koala Information

The Koala (Phascolarctos cinereus) is a marsupial native to Australia. Marsupials include kangaroos, wallabies, wallaroos, possums, wombats and opossums. Koalas are found in eucalypt forests of Eastern and South-Eastern Australia. They are not found in Tasmania or Western Australia. Koalas have soft, gray, wool-like fur, which keeps them warm. They weigh about 30 pounds and grow up to 2 feet tall. Koalas are an endangered species.
