Sizes of Koalas from Queensland, Australia


The Koalas from Queensland are usually small in their size. These Koalas which live at Queensland weigh around 7 to 9 Kilograms on average. Queensland is an area of natural beauty in Australia and the presence of Koalas make this natural beauty more fascinating. However, a few exceptions of Koalas from Queensland can grow as big as 12 kilograms while other Koalas can be considerably smaller than the average size and they can weigh around 5 to 6 kilograms. It should be specifically noted that these weights are specifically recorded at the age of their maturity. These Koalas are relatively small as compared to their sibling koalas that live within Victorian territory. There can be oodles of reasons for the smaller sizes of these Koalas, but these Koalas are fully fit and are living within the Queensland for millions of years ago.

The area of Queensland is usually dry. The plantation at Queensland is rather scarce and obviously the leaves and the plantations which the Koalas love to eat at the area are rather scarce. It should also be noted that Koalas only eat specific leaves of a tree that are full of poison including cyanide. Our further articles will elaborate more about such leaves and their specifications. Therefore, in such conditions, it is very challenging for an animal like Koala to survive at Queensland but they have adapted well to the local conditions and made their survival certain. This certainty has obviously influenced their physical aspects as well and surely it could have also made a key impact on the sizes of the Koalas.

The environmental conditions of the Queensland have also made a significant influence on Koalas’ coloring of the fur as well. Since the area is rather warmer and hot, as compared to the other areas, therefore, a lighter skin might help in this regard. This is the core reason that the Koalas belonging to this area of Queensland have a very lighter fur and its exact coloring is gray rather than being dark. Moreover, their fur coloring is rather thin as well. Therefore, apart from the shapes and sizes, the local Koalas at Queensland have also evolved their fur coloring and thickness (the fur is thin) as well.
