Just one more day
We’re nearly there. Just one more day until the weekend. For those who are lucky enough to have these days to recharge and rewind after a long week make sure you enjoy it. Head outside and take in the great outdoors at a local trail or, if you’d prefer, stay in and read a good book or watch a movie with your family. Whatever you do, hopefully you return to work or school Monday refreshed and ready for the week. Remember, just one more day until then!

— Koalas typically inhabit open eucalypt woodlands, and the leaves of these trees make up most of their diet. Because this eucalypt diet has limited nutritional and caloric content, koalas are largely sedentary and sleep for up to 20 hours a day.
