Definition: A bearlike, sluggish, tailless, gray furry, arboreal marsupial of Australia that feeds on eucalyptus leaves.
Note: This sign is a loanword from Auslan (Australian Sign Language), 1999. Today there are several different signs from that of 1999 (learned during the WFD Congress in Brisbane, AU).
Fun fact: The koala bear is not actually a bear but is related to the kangaroo and wombat.
