Our small plastic koala bear toy is just the right size replica for your Australian animal life shoebox diorama. This small, leaf-eating koala model will fit in a shoe box along with examples of other animals from Australia. Add a kangaroo, wombat, or Tasmanian devil; create a landscape with rocks, plants, grass, make a river or stream from anything that strikes your imagination, and there you go - a scene of the diversity of life on our planet. Our plastic toy koala is made of solid plastic and is quite durable. Be sure to take a look at our other koalas.
The koala (Phascolarctos cinereus) is not a bear, but a marsupial, found only in Australia. It lives exclusively in trees and is a herbivore. It looks a little like a wombat, but is a tree dweller. It has long sharp claws adapted for climbing and weighs 11 to 30 lbs. A baby koala is referred to as a joey and is hairless, blind, and earless. At birth the joey, only a quarter of an inch long, crawls into the downward-facing pouch on the mother's bellywhich is closed by a drawstring-like muscle that the mother can tighten at will) and attaches itself to one of the two teats.
