The Koala bear is a fuzzy little animal from Australia, that is not actually a bear.
It is from a family of animals known as marsupials like the kangaroo.

Just like the kangaroo, koalas carry their babies in pouches on their bellies until they are older.

Koalas mostly only eat eucalyptus leaves, and they don't eat very much or drink very much.
Because they don't get much energy, they sleep about 20 hours a day, and are only active and moving around for about 4 minutes a day!
