Koalas diets consist of 100% eucalyptus leaves.

Eucalyptus leaves are known to contain THC.

FYI, the Platypus and Box Jellyfish are Venomous (like the snake) not poisonous.

A poison is something you ingest.

A venom is introduced into the body by being absorbed or injected through the skin.

This being said there is no such thing as a poisonous snake, they are all venomous.

Just another little-know fact you can add to your little known-fact posts.
