What are Koalas ?

These are bear like arboreal Australian marsupial that have thick gray fur and feeds on eucalyptus leaves.

A group of international scientists working in Australia have traced the love lives of Koalas discovering some unfamiliar behaviors & exposing that a male Koalas make their distinct bellows to avoid fighting with competitors searching for a fellow to breed with.

Even though they a recognized for their beautiful appearances, Koalas have a very loud throaty grunts & bays and Male Koalas at some times bellow to attract females.

Ellis said that Male Koalas bellow their presence which helps them to tell who’s bigger from their bellows and stay away from them in order to avoid fighting with other males in the breeding period which is different from other creatures that yell at each other in an argument.

Researchers said the social system of the Koala was poorly known despite the fact they were charming and well- known species, they also said that much of these animals social & mating behaviors remain un quantified because they thought that during the mating season, Male Koalas would fight more but they found out that males bellowed to reduce the physical fights with other males which allows them to space themselves apart with little mating competition.

Females spend most of their time together in the trees during the mating season than in the non breeding season.

Researchers followed the Koala interactions using GPS tracing collars on wild Koalas to learn about their species mating system.

Every Koala in the study had a radio collar so researchers were able to plot all their interactions such as when the

Ellis said that the researchers concluded by saying that the indirect male-male competition done by bellowing Female mate choice and possibly female competition moderated sexual selection in these animals.
