Koalas Are Not BearsA. Boyea
Contrary to popular belief, Koalas are not actually bears, although they have been referred to as “Koala Bears” for many years. Koalas are really marsupials, which means the young are born immature and develop in the mother’s pouch. Other common marsupials in the animal kingdom are kangaroos and wallabies. Koalas are sleepy creatures (some sleep up to 18 hours per day) and they are cute, cuddly, and adorable.
