Artist's Description

Shot@philip island wild park

The koala gets its name from an ancient Aboriginal word meaning “no drink” because it receives over 90% of its hydration from the Eucalyptus leaves that it eats, and only drinks when ill or times when there is not enough moisture in the leaves.

The koala is the only mammal, other than the Greater Glider and Ringtail Possum, which can survive on a diet of eucalyptus leaves. Eucalyptus leaves are very fibrous and low in nutrition, and to most animals are extremely poisonous. They will sleep for up to 18 hours per day in order to conserve energy.
