ABC Wednesday

Link up at ABC Wednesday if you'd like to join!

This week's letter is K.

K is for  koalas!  They're technically not bears.  They're actually  marsupials related to kangaroos, and their main common factor with bears is that they are both warm-blooded mammals. Don't they look so cute and cuddly!  Noooo.  They actually have sharp teeth and claws.

More Quick Facts:
Nicknamed Native Bear
Give birth to live young.
Babies are called cubs.
They are blind when they're born.
Babies nurse their mother's milk.
Mothers have a pouch.
Babies live in the mother's pouch for five months.
Their gray fur is very thick.
Their underbellies are white.
They live and sleep in Eucalyptus trees.

I wish we had them in the wild in the US!
