Koala Animalia Art
I am a marsupial that looks a lot like a teddy bear. I am placid and a solitary animal and I sleep up to 23 hours a day. We spend most of our time in trees and rarely come down as that is where our main predators, dingoes and dogs, are.
My species feeds almost exclusively on the leaves and bark of 120 of the 800 species of eucalypti present in Australia and in order for us to be able to ingest eucalyptus our babies must be fed the faeces of our parents in order to build up a stomach lining that can handle the toxins in the eucalyptus.

What is an animalia animal made from?
Our animals are laser cut from 3mm Corten® Steel.
Will my animal rust?
Yes – our animals are made from Corten which is designed to rust. This gives them long term protection against the elements, and a beautiful patina that shifts with the seasons.
What is Corten steel?
A copper chromium alloy steel, Corten is weather resistant – it’s designed to rust quickly, which gives a layer of protection. It means that our animals last for decades, with a patina that changes with the seasons.
