Koalas typically inhabit open eucalypt woodlands, and the leaves of these trees make up most of their diet. Because this eucalypt diet has limited nutritional and caloric content, koalas are largely sedentary and sleep for up to 20 hours a day. They are asocial animals, and bonding exists only between mothers and dependent offspring. Adult males communicate with loud bellows that intimidate rivals and attract mates. Males mark their presence with secretions from scent glands located on their chests. Being marsupials, koalas give birth to underdeveloped young that crawl into their mothers' pouches, where they stay for the first six to seven months of their life. These young koalas are known as joeys, and are fully weaned at around a year. Koalas have few natural predators and parasites but are threatened by various pathogens, like Chlamydiaceae bacteria and the koala retrovirus, as well as by bushfires and droughts.

This lovely illustration was done by Mike Berndt of Earmark. The design is simple and perfect. The print is printed on a heavy cotton twill fabric. Each print is then presented in a lovely wood-grain flexible oval frame with a ring so you can hang it with ease. (Frame is not actual wood).
This whimsical piece is perfect for gift-giving. No framing needed, just open, hang and enjoy.
