Koalas

Published March 16, 2016 by tapasmi

The fluffy little grey faunae

Australia- originates from there

The little Aussie wonders

Incorrectly named ‘koala bear’.

 

Yes, it is the sweet Koala

With fur so soft and grey

They are gentle herbivores

Eucalyptus their only prey.

 

Eyes so warm and inky

A bulky and black nose

And ears large as tea plates

With sharp nails on the toes.

 

Soft and gentle they may seem

And indeed; they’re not scary

But they are in the wild after all

So to interfere you must be wary.

 

Leave them space to themselves

Admire them from quite afar

Or they’ll slash at you with their teeth

Not their apparent soft avatar!

 

They eat so much eucalyptus

They are perfumed with its oil

The sleep for about 20 hours

About 4 hours of eating toil.

 

Koala mums too have pouches

To contain joeys- the little ones

No bigger than a jelly bean

And for round a decade grow the sons.

 

So next time you spy a picture

That makes you exclaim “Awww!”

Keep in mind these curious facts

And be cautious of the claw!
