Koalas are Kute

I saw a picture of a koala today and they are sooo cute!! So I had to do a post about them

Interesting facts about Koalas,

• They aren’t bears, they are marsupials (like Kangaroos and Wombats) and they carry their babies in pouches - I don't think I knew that

• baby koalas are called joeys are less than an inch long when they are born – they stay in their mom’s pouch for about 7 months

• momma koalas only have one baby a year and they take 3-4 years to mature

• word Koala means ‘no drink' because they can go a long time without water

• koalas are nocturnal and sleep about 19 hours a day

So adorable !!! I want one! But I think this is as close as I'm going to get...

But I'll take it!
