Cute Koalas

While not exactly an answer to my “Meow?” question, a recent article on Wired Science called “Think Koalas Are Cute? Thank Eucalyptus and Evolution” offers some insight into how these things happen.

It all makes sense once you consider that “the unique cranial configuration of the modern koala is therefore the result of accommodating their masticatory adaptations without compromising their auditory system…”  Thanks, Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology!

Have you heard the noise those things make?
