Koalas were one of the first six animals in Animal Jam. They traveled in the past, limiting player access to them. They left April 11, 2013 and came back in mid summer of 2013. They were the second animal to travel. They have come back from their adventures with Cosmo the Koala Alpha, allowing Jammers to purchase them again. When they returned, the newest land, Kimbara Outback appeared. It has not been confirmed that it was the Koalas who discovered Kimbara, it may have been a coincidence. Cosmo the koala Alpha has his own adventure, now for all Jammers, at the Adventures Beta. They were briefly popular when they came back but it quickly died back down.
When first created, the Koala is short and fuzzy, with large furry brown ears with spirals indicating the ear's insides. The koala has two large black round eyes; a large, square dark gray nose; tan-shading around the eyes and a matching neck/belly. The rest of the koala is a medium brown, and it stands up on its hind-legs.
Dance: Waves arms right and left and then jumps, imitating the hula quickly.
Hop: Sits then springs up. It is almost as high as a bunny's hop.
Play: Does a somersault, shakes ears, and scratches neck.
Sleep: Sleeps facing sideways
Sit: Sits and leans head on one side.
