Default Strange facts about koalas...

Finally, an educational topic for a change...

Quote:
The word koala is aboriginal for "no drink." Koala get the water they need from their food.
The aboriginal people were apparently wrong.






Quote:
The koala is one of the few mammals (other than primates) that has fingerprints. Koala fingerprints are similar to human fingerprints; even with an electron microscope, it can be quite difficult to distinguish between the two.
Hmmm... The next time I'm defending a client on trial for murder, I know who I'm pointing the finger at.



Quote:
The male koala, like many marsupials, has a bifurcated *****...


Quote:
The female has two lateral vaginas and two separate uteri, which is common to all marsupials.









Sorry in advance for the stupid post. Saw this pic and decided to do koala research (he lived but contracted chlamydia, btw... I guess that's why they named him Lucky):

I think it would be fun to have one as a pet.

I read somewhere the OP's avatar is like the Russian version of Winnie the Pooh.

If I remember correctly the Russian version of Winnie the Pooh is completely insane.

Up to 80% of the koala population has chlamydia.

Quote:
While nobody knows how koalas first came to be infected with chlamydia, some researchers speculate koalas may have been exposed to infected mammals at some point in their evolution. The disease spreads among koalas through male-male and male-female sexual contact, as well as orally from mother to young during child rearing.
Obviously a punishment from God.



Seriously, though, very sad ...

I wish someone would make genetically modified pets. Then we could have tiny rhinos or giraffes or kitten sized koalas as pets.
