    Some of the areas they live in can get quite cold at night, particularly in winter curling up in the fork of a tree means they are quite well insulated from the cold and wind.

    It also offers protection from tree branch scratches etc.

    They are not particularly liked by many birds, who will swoop at them, because of the damage the Koalas do to their nests while they are climbing, so the fur protects them from that, too.
