    “The Koala’s unique strategy is to have neither of these. So when its teeth wear down they just starve to death.”

    the small volume of the koala's brain could actually be due to how its evolved to save energy. Having large brain takes up so much energy while koalas' diet, eucalyptus, contain very little nutrition.

    "However, this lack of brain gives the koala a discrete evolutionary advantage, in that, it does not give a f@&#! Case in point... Koala in the rain..... NO F@#&$ GIVEN." I can't take it I'm seriously dying
