Sleepy Guy

Sleepy Guy

This guy is sleepy. I caught him yawning. See how cute he is? If I did not remember wrongly, they sleep 2/3 of their lifetime. We, human sleep for about 1/3 - 1/4 of our lifetime.
The koalas sleep for up to 19 hours. The koala lives on the East coast of Australia. They live and sleep in the eucalyptus trees. It's hot, light, and dry here.

The koala has big ears and a big nose. The mother has a pouch. The koala has very thick fur. The adult koala gets 25 to 30 inches long. The koala is very small when it's just born. After a month the cub is 1 cm. long. The koala weighs 15 to 30 pounds. One cub is born at a time.
