Fifteen koalas (Phascolarctos cinereus) – 5 pouched young from 4 to 6.5 months and 10 adults from 5 to 16.5 years – were analyzed for functional parameters (body composition, limb segment and muscle mass, post-cranial skeletal characters) and developmental expressions (growth of body, brain, musculature). [...] Key Method These data were compared with a convergent eutherian, the three-toed sloth, Bradypus infuscatus, and with the koala’s distant (Macropodid; wallabies) and proximate (Vombatid; wombats…Expand
