Koala Behavior

The Koala is a very good climber and spends most of the time in trees. It is a nocturnal animal and sleeps for up to 16 hours a day. Koalas are solitary animals, which feed on the leaves of eucalypts. Koalas feed on approximately 12 eucalypt species. They seldom drink water because Eucalyptus leaves are 50% consisting of water. Koalas communicate with each other by making a range of noises.
