Koalas

SIB and DMD went to San Diego Zoo last Thursday during SBAC testing.

I saw one of my favorite animals, the koalas. They are from Australia. The zoo has a wonderful exhibit with lots of eucalyptuses for them to eat, climb, and live in. They are gray with big black noses on their sleepy faces and chubby and fluffy bodies, and those features make them look so cute.

It wasn’t the first time I saw koalas. But every time I see them, they are always sleeping. They usually sleep between 18-22 hours a day. I looked up the reason online after I went home. The explanation is that they sleep a lot to conserve energy as their diet requires a lot of energy to digest.

The experience at the zoo was awesome. I hope we have a chance to visit the zoo again.
