Koalas - Capturing Nature Print



Koala, Phascolarctos cinereus. This koala mother and baby were on display in a case in the Museum's 'Australian Hall'.

This is the description from the 1890 guidebook: 'The Koala or Native Bear'

These are quiet, peaceful animals; their fur is very thick and soft, generally grey in colour. Their favourite food is the leaves of the Eucalypti, though they eat some kinds of roots and in confinement will live a short time on bread and vegetables. The young is carried on the mothers back till it is able to climb alone'. 

Photographer: Henry Barnes.
