September 26 – Save the Koala Day

Posted on September 26, 2014

Riddle: What's cute and fuzzy-furry-cuddly, eats mostly eucalyptus leaves, has super-sharp claws and (often) stinks big time because of the glands on its chest?

Answer: the koala!

You probably know that koalas are native to Australia, and that they are marsupials, which means that their babies are born while still embryos and finish developing in their moms' pouches.

According to the Australian Koala Foundation, September is Save the Koala Month, and today is the one-day version of the effort to raise awareness of and concern for these unusual and adorable animals!
