Science & Nature Australian Animal Figurine - KOALA

Science and Nature



Our much loved koalas, with their stout, tailless body, large head with round, fluffy ears and large, spoon-shaped nose, are instantly recognisable as a symbol of Australia. Koalas are an integral part of the Australian bush – perched high up in the branches of gum trees sleeping for up to 20 hours a day.

 A common mistake is calling them a ‘koala bear,’ they’re marsupials not bears.
