“Mention the koala to anyone and the reaction you get will probably be somewhere between ‘aaah!’ and ‘oooh!’  No other creature in Australia has such an immediate appeal to the public.  For millions of years the ancestors of the koala lived peacefully in the eucalyptus trees, munching away at the oily leaves that were their sole food.  Today, thanks to timely government action, the koala continues to roam through the eucalyptus forests of eastern Australia.
The furry ears, ‘tennis ball’ nose and woolly fur, with which the delightful koala is endowed, seem deliberately calculated to be irresistible.  This has resulted in a flourishing trade in children’s toys based on the koala and the endearment of the native marsupial to all who see it.”
