These agile animals are one of the fastest land mammals, the Arctic hare can run at speeds of 60km/hr.
What are baby Koalas called?
Koala bears are marsupials and all their young ones are called Joey. If you think Koala is a bear, then you are mistaken, they are more closely related to the Wombats and Kangaroos.
Koalas are only found in Australia, their size and fur differ based on their geographic location. In the colder regions of the South, the Koalas are comparatively larger in size and have thicker coat of fur.
When it comes to food, Koalas are very choosy, they only feast on some varieties of Eucalyptus. Because of this low energy-yielding diet, Koalas have to sleep for about 16-20 hours per day to conserve energy.
What are the young ones of Bats called?
The young bats are called Pups. Bats mostly give birth to only one pup per year.
