The Koala is native to Australia. It is recognized by its stout, tailless body and large head with round, fluffy ears and large, spoon-shaped nose. They have a body length of 24-33 inches and weigh 9 to 33 pounds. Female Koalas give birth to undeveloped young that crawl into their mother's pouches where they stay for the first six to seven months of their lives. Young Koalas are fully weaned around a year old.
