"Koala" is an Aboriginal name, meaning "no drink."  Australia's lovable koala is sometimes known as the native bear but in fact, is no relation to the bear family.  The koala is a nocturnal, tree-dwelling marsupial that feeds almost exclusively on the leaves of eucalyptus trees.  We really enjoyed holding a koala bear.  The fur is really soft!
