Gaining weight is very important for the female Koalas, because it helps them to fend off any unnecessary predators, and also allows them to have a control over the territory. A Koala that has more weight also tends to have more chances of mating and spread their genes to the next generation. On the other hand the male Koalas who weigh less are also prone to the risk of the air predators as well such as Eagles and other birds of prey. Even though the Koalas are highly solitary, a male Koala with less weight is prone to remain more solitary with a very minimum chance of interaction with the female Koalas. In many cases the smaller male Koalas also tend to lose their territories as well to other stronger male Koalas who weigh almost double than them. Therefore, for male Koalas it is a matter of survival and future existence to gain more weight.
