The grey fur of the koala blends with the tree enabling them to camouflage.
The koala (Phascolarctos cinereus) or sometimes known by tourists as the koala bear, is native to only Australia and is the only existing representative of the family Phascolarctidae. The koala is found in coastal areas of the mainland's eastern and southern regions, inhabiting Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia.
It is easily recognisable by its stout, tailless body and large head with round, fluffy ears and large, spoon-shaped nose. The koala has a body length of 60cm-85cm (24in–33in) and weighs 4kg-15 kg (9lb–33lb). Their fur ranges in colour from silver grey to chocolate brown, depending on location.
