Migrants from Australia brought eucalyptus seeds to California in the 1800s. The plant took over. That’s good news for the zoo’s koalas. They can eat more than two pounds each day. Oakland Zoo is not far from San Francisco. Local tree trimmers donate black acacia tree branches for giraffes. One giraffe can eat 75 pounds of food in a day!
