Do Koalas Eat Bamboo?

Koalas don’t consume bamboo; they devour eucalyptus leaves, according to National Geographic. The marsupials known as koalas are found in eastern Australia. The eucalyptus tree grows in some of their settings.

Koalas spend up to 18 hours a day sleeping and hardly ever leave the eucalyptus trees they eat from. Their opposable digits and claws make climbing simple. Koalas can spend more time on their tree because eucalyptus leaves provide the majority of the moisture they consume.

Although eucalyptus leaves are deadly, the koala has a unique digestive system that can neutralise the poison’s effects. Koalas smell like eucalyptus oil because they spend the majority of their waking hours eating.
