More facts about koalas:

1. Koalas have a very low metabolic rate which means they have to conserve energy by sleeping for around 20 hours a day.

2. Koalas are not bears, they are marsupials of course.

3. The best Youtube comment I found while looking for koala videos was this: ‘I WANT TO FEED A KOALA A SANDWICH END OF DISCUSSION’”
