When you think about Australian animals, chances are one of our cute koalas will come to mind. We wanted to know a little more about the iconic Australian marsupial so we spoke to Tim Faulkner from the Australian Reptile Park. Tim answered a few of our questions – like whether koalas are actually a type of bear, where you can cuddle one and whether they eat anything other than gum leaves. We even learned that the koala’s closest living relative is the wombat!
