Ever seen a wet koala? Those talons make sense and are the only give away of the sinister secret these animals hide while dry. (Intentionally over the top. But they get scary)

This koala just made my whole night!! When I was a kid, I had a favorite koala plush. Too bad, I lost it when I brought it on my holiday.

They weigh the branch separately, and then subtract that total from the weight of both the branch and the koala

If by this, you mean being the cutest little thing I've seen I'm a while, then you'd be right. Because by god is that little feller cute.
