The story about the koala in English

The koala is a small bear-like, tree-dwelling, herbivorous marsupial which averages about 9kg (20lb) in weight. Its fur is thick and usually ash gray with a tinge of brown in places.

Koalas live in eastern Australia, where the eucalyptus trees they love are most plentiful. During the day they doze, tucked into forks or nooks in the trees, sleeping for up to 18 hours.

When not asleep a koala feeds on eucalyptus leaves, especially at night. Koalas do not drink much water and they get most of their moisture from these leaves. Each animal eats a tremendous amount for its size — about two and a half pounds of leaves a day. Koalas even store snacks of leaves in pouches in their cheeks.
