The Koala's Air-conditioner - It hugs treesYes its true. On very hot days, the koala may resort to hugging the truck or large branches of a tree to keep cool. By doing so it transfers its body heat to the tree and in the process cools itself.
This is the same principle used in air-conditioners called heat transferal or thermal conduction.
