Koalas, or as they are often inaccurately known as koala bears, are native marsupials of Australia. Their myth of being a bear has grown in popularity because of their closest living relative the drop bear.
A drop bear (hylarctos plummetus) is a fearsome creature known to ambush unsuspecting prey from trees. A drop bears diet consists entirely of meat, they never need to sleep, and they make no sound while they watch their prey from above. Drop bears are so large and fast they can easily bring down adult sized red kangaroos and full-grown humans with ease. They can be found all over the country, but especially around places frequented by tourists who don’t look up.
Ok so drop bears may just be a myth. But the koala is an Aussie legend. They are found mainly around the east coast of Australia nearly completely existing on a diet of eucalyptus leaves. Yet as eucalyptus leaves have such a low energy rate, koalas need to rest around 20 hours a day to conserve as much energy as possible!
Our native fluffy mascot, the koala, is truly iconic for all things Australiana. Known worldwide for their sleepy and shyness, they have captivated the attention and love from foreigners and locals who have had the privilege to meet one up close.
So why don’t you share an iconic Australian mascot with everyone you know today. And remember to warn everyone to watch out for drop bears!
