Weighing Male vs Female Koalas


There is a big difference in between the male and Female Koalas in terms of their weights. At maximum a male Koala can weigh around 18 Kilograms or even more, whereas; at maximum a female Koala can gain a maximum weight of around 12 Kilograms when reaching a mature age. Therefore, the male Koalas weigh more than 60 to 70% more than the female Koalas. This also allows male Koalas to be highly dominant over the female Koalas. This is very normal from an ecological perspective. Hyenas are few of the animals in which females are bigger and dominant over their males.
