The correct option is; only eat eucalyptus leavesKoala Bears are a specialist species because they only eat eucalyptus leaves.Specialist species are species that can survive only in a limited range of conditions such as diet, camouflage, climate, etc, Koala Bears are mammals marsupials that feed selectively on the leaves of the eucalyptus trees. The nutrient content of the diet (eucalyptus leaves) is very low, and provides agencies with a small amount of energy. Specialist species such as the koala bears are very bad at competing with other organisms, and are much more likely to go extinct when the specific conditions change.
