A koala is an Australian mammal that looks like a teddy bear. It is sometimes called a koala bear or native bear, but the koala is not related to any kind of bear. Koalas have soft, thick fur; a large, hairless nose; round ears; and no tail. The fur is gray or brown on the animal's back and white on the belly. Koalas measure from 25 to 30 inches (64 to 76 centimeters) in length and weigh 15 to 30 pounds (7 to 14 kilograms). Koalas have sharp, curved claws; long toes; and a strong grip. They spend nearly all their time in trees and come down only to move to another one. Koalas are active mainly at night. They sleep most of the day in the fork of a eucalyptus tree. Koalas eat mainly the leaves and young shoots of eucalyptus trees. They obtain liquids chiefly from eucalyptus leaves. Koalas that live in the wild rarely drink water. The word koala comes from an Australian Aborigine word meaning no drink.
