Sleepy Koala

This sleepy little girl looks very content high up in her tree. They sleep typically for between 16 and 20 hours a day.

Koalas, Queensland

This classicly Australian animal lives purely off a diet of Eucalyptus leaves, and as if that's not bad enough, they're fussy enough to prefer only certain types of Eucalyptus. Now under threat from habitat destruction, there are many parks and sanctuaries around Australia who dedicate time, money and effort to preserving this species.
