What eats koalas?

What do koalas eat?

Koalas in the wild are preyed upon by the dingo, which is the wild dog of Australia, as well as by large birds of prey, including owls.

But each year, domestic dogs and automobiles kill far more koalas than do wild predators.

The number of koalas is also declining because many of the forests they depend on for survival have been cut down.

What does a koala eat? Koalas almost exclusively eat the leaves of the eucalyptus tree.
