Why Koala Hugs The Tree?
A research performed by James Cook University revealed that Koalas hug the trees with a reason.
Professor Krockenberger: “We know that about a quarter of the koalas in one population in New South Wales died during a heat wave in 2009. Understanding the types of factors that can make some populations more resilient is important.”
Koalas also pant and lick their fur to cool down.
Professor Krockenberger: “Accessing to (cool) trees can save about half the water a koala would need to keep cool on a hot day”
Researchers used a portable weather station on a long pole to measure what the koalas were experiencing in the places they chose to sit, compared to other places available to them.
My profession is online marketing and development (10+ years experience), check my latest mobile app called Upcoming or my Chrome extensions for ChatGPT.
