From a post about something you cannot see in Australia, to one about something you can only see in Australia.
This is (of course) a Koala. It is not under any circumstances a bear. It's a marsupial, which strangely enough is more closely related to the Wombat than other marsupials.
They do spend a lot of time doing not a lot, but this is because they are fermenting a gut full of leaves to allow gut bacteria to turn the nutrient poor leaves into something rather more valuable.
I may have mentioned this before, but they are the only vertebrate whose brain does not fill the cranium - and they grey matter is prevented from bouncing about but a kind of jelly like substance! The truth of the matter is that when you are inactive for 20 of 24 hours you don't need to be that smart!
