What Koalas Eat?
Koalas eat eucalyptus leaves. They are very picky eaters. If they do not find any eucalyptus leaves they will not eat. The oil found in the leaves is poisonous to mammals. They live in the eucalyptus trees and the leaves provide the water that they drink. Koalas have occasionally been known to eat others foods like wattle, tea tree, paperbark, and pine species but it is not part of their normal diet.
