Are koala’s actually bears?

    Koalas are marsupials, they carry their young in a pouch. Their new born babies are called joeys and their birth length is usually less than an inch long like kangaroos. Their resemblance to bears prompted early Australian settlers to name them so, though their biology and behavior is marsupial in nature. Most native Australians just refer to them as koalas, with their name coming from an aboriginal word meaning “no drink”. Similiarly, pandas were once thought to be part of the racoon family even though they resembled bears.
