Your child is sure to stay warm and cozy while trick-or-treating in this Cute Toddler Koala Costume! Any child can be a koala, but no child can be a koala "bear." That's because there's no such thing as a "koala bear"--koalas AREN'T bears! The first European naturalist to describe them thought that they looked like bears, and they sort of do, so he gave them a Latin name containing the word for bear. Later zoologists who have studied koalas carefully found out that they're not even remotely related to bears--but the misconception had taken hold in the English language. Wow, this isn't only a costume, it's an opportunity for some education, too!
