Caption: Koala hand. Hand of a koala (Phascolarctos cinereus), showing its two thumbs (top). Koalas are arboreal herbivorous marsupials native to Australia. They have evolved this two-thumb adaptation to help them climb the eucalyptus trees they spend most of their life in. Photographed on Kangaroo Island, Australia.
