Koalas are wild creatures native to Australia that are known for their love for eucalyptus leaves. In fact, koalas use eucalyptus trees both for natural habitat and for food. When koalas are not sleeping, you can usually find them eating. That’s why they look so happy all the time! By the way, fun fact: did you know that koalas are not bears?
