Picky Eaters

19

You might want to think twice before you invite a koala over for dinner because they are very picky eaters. Koalas only eat certain species of Eucalyptus trees and are even particular about which tree they collect leaves from! According to new research the size of the tree, the neighborhood it is found in and the taste of the leaves matter the most to koalas looking for a tasty snack.
