Koalas Aren't Bears

Why do we call them koala bears? It's not a bear - it's a marsupial. Bears don't have pouches! It is also important to note that koalas mainly eat leaves from eucalyptus trees while real bears eat kids.

Thank you for clearing that up. Boy, did I ever dodge a bullet!

What about pandas? They're bears aren't they? I mean even though they eat bamboo instead of children that can't possibly disqualify them could it?

Pandas don't have pouches, so they're not marsupials like the koalas. But because of their bamboo-eating policy, within the bear world they are techincally known as "sissy bears."
