The Koala (Phascolarctos cinereus) is a thickset arboreal marsupial herbivore native to Australia, and the only extant representative of the family, Phascolarctidae.
Koalas live almost entirely on eucalyptus leaves.
The koala was hunted almost to extinction in the early 20th century, largely for its fur.
In recent years, some colonies have been hard hit by disease, especially chlamydia.
