This website is dedicated to the Australian native, the koala.  The koala's scientific name is Phascolarctos cinereus.  Although oftentimes incorrectly called a bear, the koala is actually a marsupial (Sotzek 1997).  To learn more about the koalas taxonomy, check out our classification page. 








Koalas are very unique and interesting animals.  To learn more about koalas, including information about their habitat, nutrition, reproduction, and interactions with other koalas and other species, please explore our site.
