Difference between Queensland and Victorian Koalas


Despite the fact there is no obvious difference in between Koalas living within Australia’s Victorian territory and Queensland territory, there are still some key attributes which allow them to be different from one another. These key factors include difference in terms of their sizes, the difference of weights, difference of lengths, variance of fur thickness, and a distinctive fur coloring etc. But despite these difference Koalas a normal person may not be able to distinguish in between the Koalas belonging to the Victorian territory or a Koala from Australia’s Queensland territory. It is always the job of the experts to differentiate in between these two Koalas.

A Koala from Queensland is usually smaller in size. At maturity these Koalas from Queensland maintain a weight of 9 Kilograms. On the other hand the Koalas from Australia’s Victorian territory are bigger in size. Victorian Koalas are 50% are bigger than the Queensland Koalas and they are also regarded as the biggest Koalas on the planet. The limbs, legs and fingers of these Koalas are also longer as compared to the Koalas from Australia’s Victorian territory.

Koalas also differ in their furs as well. Victorian Koalas have thicker furs, while Queensland Koalas have lighter furs. This picture belongs to 

Another key factor which distinguishes the Queensland from Victorian Koala is that the Victorian Koalas from Australia have bigger limbs, elongated legs and also long hands as well. Queensland Koalas have 30% smaller limbs, and same percentage proportion is also true about legs’ length of the Koalas as well. However, in terms of their skills they almost possess a similar level of abilities; therefore, this bigger size hardly makes any difference for the Koalas. Maybe it can prove out to be a good defensive mechanism against the immediate predators such as Hawks, Falcons and Eagles for the Koalas from Australia’s Victorian Territory.

Another significant difference in between the Koalas of Queensland and the Koalas of Australia’s Victorian territory is the difference of their fur coloring and also the thickness of the fur. The Koalas of Queensland have a thin fur and a grey color. On the other hand, the Koalas living in Australia’s Victorian territory has Brown fur and this fur is also very thick. The differences of furs of both Koalas are because of the environmental temperatures. The Koalas that are in Queensland have to face dry and hot conditions. This leads them to maintain light coloring of fur and less thicker fur as compared to the Koalas living in Victorian Territory. On the other hand, the Koalas that are residing at Victorian territory has cold weather conditions, which leads them to maintain dark and thick fur.

This also means that they belong to the same classification and family and also they can inter-breed as well.
