• The name of a new born Koala is called "joey" and is born while at the embryonic stage, weighing only 0.5 g (0.02 oz).
• The joey crawls into its mother's pouch to continue the rest of its development.Unlike most other marsupials, the koala does not clean her pouch.
• At seven weeks of age, the joey's head grows longer and becomes proportionally large, pigmentation begins to develop, and its sex can be determined.At 13 weeks, the joey weighs around 50 g (1.8 oz) and its head has doubled in size.
• Koalas do not drink much water and they get most of their moisture from these leaves.
• Each animal eats a tremendous amount for its size—about two and a half pounds (one kilogram) of leaves a day.

The koala (Phascolarctos cinereus) is an arboreal herbivorous marsupial.
Koalas live in coastal areas of the mainland's eastern and southern regions of Australia, inhabiting Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia where the eucalyptus trees they love are most plentiful.
In fact, they rarely leave these trees, and their sharp claws and opposable digits easily keep them aloft.
It is easily recognisable by its stout, tailless body; round, fluffy ears; and large, spoon-shaped nose. The koala has a body length of 60–85 cm (24–33 in) and weighs 4–15 kg (9–33 lb).
Pelage colour ranges from silver grey to chocolate brown. Koalas from the northern populations are typically smaller and lighter in colour than their counterparts further south.
It is possible that these populations are separate subspecies, but this is disputed.
