Australia

"Koala" is an Aboriginal name, meaning "no drink."  Australia's lovable koala is sometimes known as the native bear but in fact, is no relation to the bear family.  The koala is a nocturnal, tree-dwelling marsupial that feeds almost exclusively on the leaves of eucalyptus trees.  We really enjoyed holding a koala bear.  The fur is really soft!
