Cuddly Koalas

Koala Sleeping, Sydney, Australia

Koala, Kangaroo Island, Australia

Koala Pair, Brisbane, Australia

Koalas live in the eastern part of Australia. They eat over 2 pounds of Eucalyptus leaves per day.  Since the leaves are hard to digest and low in nutrition, koalas spend up to 18 hours per day sleeping!  Something remarkable about koalas is that they have fingerprints that are nearly identical to ours.  The whirls and ridges of the skin are virtually the same!

About Pam
Richard and Pam lived in the San Francisco Bay Area 14 years (1987-1999 and 2008-2011). They lived in Florida 13 years previously, until returning in July 2011 to present. They hope their photography will encourage you to get out and discover nature's beauty in your own backyard, parks, and wild places.
