FTA: "Given that koalas spend so much time in trees - the marsupials live in Australia's woodlands where they munch on leaves and sleep - nobody wondered why they hugged the trunks."

Koalas are flammable. They are covered in oil from the Eucalyptus trees. The trees have evolved to make the flammable oil in order to burn the underlying layer of brush while they can endure the flames.
