It was way back in 1990 that my godfather sent me this post card from Australia.
Following is the information from the back of the card:
Koala (Phascolarctos cinereus)
Of all Australian herbivourous marsupials the Koala is probably the most highly specialised. It is entirely a creature of the treetops. About one kilogram of food is consumed each day, consisting of various types of gum leaves. The Koala givess birth usually to a single young, which is carred on the female's back after the usual period of time in the pouch.
Photographed at the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, Brisbane, Australia.
