Koalas in Queensland live less as compared to the Koalas within the Victorian territory. The Koalas in Queensland die earlier than their average age, because there is less availability of the food resources for the koalas at that area, while within the Victorian territory, the food availability is higher, and as a result of that the Koalas average age has been greater.
