What are koalas' daily habits?

Koalas are essentially solitary creatures which have a habit of roaming between their home trees within their home range, or territory. This puts them at risk from ground-dwelling predators, particularly wild and domestic dogs. They are nocturnal, although they can be active during the day.

Koalas spend up to 18 hours a day sleeping, but their main hours of activity are at night, meaning they are nocturnal. They feed almost exclusively on eucalyptus leaves and flowers, reaching out with their hands, which have opposable thumbs, to grasp new leaves.
