Cracking the Koala Code Video: Preparing For A Eucalyptus Diet

May 17, 2012

 

A baby koala consumes his mother’s pap, a secretion that will give the joey the bacteria needed to digest eucalyptus leaves. Watch a scene from Cracking the Koala Code which premiered May 16, 2012  on PBS Nature.

 

Cracking the Koala Code premieres Wednesday May 16, 2012 at 8/7c on PBS. The film explores the day-to-day dramas of an extended family of koalas, seen through the eyes of the scientists studying their every move and vocalization. Using 3G solar-powered mobile phones to record koala vocalizations, and applying their recordings in the field to evoke koala responses, scientists have managed to decipher some of the koalas’ communications, providing new insights into the basic language and social structure of these marsupials.
