Posting an unheard of third entry this week -- who knew 'leaves' could make me so creative?
Here's a koala surrounded by his favorite eucalyptus leaves.
And I learned that there is a common misconception that Koalas get ‘drugged out’ or ‘high’ on eucalyptus leaves and that’s why they sleep a lot. They need more sleep than most animals because eucalyptus leaves contain toxins and are very low in nutrition and high in fibrous matter so they take a large amount of energy to digest. Sleeping for long periods is a strategy for conserving energy...and they sleep for 22 hours a day!
