Asked in Koalas

Do koalas drink fresh water or sea water?


Wiki User

Koalas are not bears.

Koalas do not drink any water at all. They get sufficient moisture from the eucalyptus leaves they eat.

Koalas rarely drink water. The majority of their water comes from that contained in their food or from dew or rainwater on the surface of leaves; however, during times of drought or bush fires, they have been observed drinking water.
