The koala, perhaps Australia’s most beloved and iconic animal. The cuddly koala 'bear' is not really a bear at all, but a marsupial. Protected by law the koala inhabits trees and feed solely on a diet of eucalypt (gum) leaves. Like many Australian mammals, this unique creature is nocturnal and can sleep for approximately 18 hours a day. This idea was the inspiration behind the design concept.
