Animal Fact of the Day: Koalas naps!

You might want to rename your afternoon cat nap to koala naps. These cuddly marsupials need up to twenty hours of sleep a day! Since they have a slow metabolism and eat for three to five hours a day, Koalas have to recharge their bodies for an extended period of time.Get your very own Koala to snuggle with over at The Jungle Store!

As you'll see in the below video, Koalas have to slow chew on the eucalyptus leaves until they are eventually an easily swallow-able paste.

Even though this creatures look innocent they are quite vocal and fiesty as you'll see in the last two clips!
