Koala @ San Diego Zoo

Koala @ San Diego Zoo  Koalas are just so cute.  They look cuddly and they are; just watch out for those nails.  Their handlers wear special leather gloves.  The term “koala bear” is a misnomer.  Koalas are actually marsupials that belong to the same family as possums and kangaroos. There are about 50 koalas in North America spread across 11 zoos with the San Diego Zoo having 25 alone.  Koalas are native to eastern Australian forests and feed solely on the region’s eucalyptus trees.
