From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48:

Koala \Ko*a"la\, n.
   A tailless furry marsupial (Phascolarctos cinereus), found
   in Australia. The female carries her young on the back of her
   neck. Called also Australian bear, koala bear, {native
   bear}, and native sloth. The koala lives almost all of its
   life in trees, moves sluggishly like a sloth, and eats
   eucalyptus leaves almost exclusively.
