FAMILY KOALAWhat do Koalas eat?

Koalas eat eucalyptus leaves. If they don’t find any of them, they will not eat. The oil found in the leaves is poisonous to mammals. Koalas have special bacteria that lines the stomach and will break down the leaves, so they can properly digest the leaves. In fact, when koalas can’t find their special leaves, they will not eat until necessary.
