Unlike the brown scent gland on the chest of male koalas, females have an unmarked, white chest.
Female koalas have a pouch where their young develop for the first six months. The pouch faces downwards, just like the pouch of their closest relative, the wombat.
To see this species in the wild, we suggest Mt Gravatt Conservation Reserve, Queensland.
