For whatever reason, Australia has some of the most interesting animals in the world, like the platypus, the kangaroo, and the koala. The koala, like the kangaroo, is a marsupial: A mammal with a pouch for its baby. A baby koala is called a 'joey' and is about the size of a jellybean at birth. It seems like almost everything about koalas is adorable.
These earrings capture the koala in a well-known position: Holding on to the trunk of a eucalyptus tree, which is where it spends most of its waking hours, eating more than 2 pounds of leaves every day.
These earrings are a mirror image of each other, so you can have one on each side to hug you.
