The Moscow zoo is growing its diversity by bringing koala bears. The negotiations on their purchase are going on right now.

This, of course, is not as difficult as getting pandas, but there are difficulties with the eucalyptus, we need to learn where to buy it, what quality it should be, how juicy it is. There are many small details and nuances, said the director of the zoo Svetlana Akulova in an interview to Govorit Moskva radio station.

She noted that koalas are not the so-called companion animals who love to be touched and stroked. Therefore, when they appear at the zoo, visitors will not be able to cuddle with them.
