The koala lives nearly all its life in euacalyptus trees. To change trees or promote digestion by eating soil, bark, and gravel. Individuals bellow to each other during the breeding season and dominant males mate with more females than do junior males. Copulation is brief and often accompanied by bites and scratches. After a gestation of 35 days, the single offspring crawls into the pouch, where it is suckled for 6 months.
It then clings to the mother’s back. Among its early solid food is the mother’s droppings, which carry helpful food-digesting and disease- fighting microbes. Despite a placid appearance, the koala readily bites and scratches.
The koala’s short, powerful limbs have sharp claws (except on the first rear toe) and granular paw pads, to grip bark and branches. Toes 1 and 2 on the front foot can oppose the other 3, allowing a pincer-like grasp of thin boughs.
