Over the years, Barnum's Animal Crackers has featured 54 different animals. The most recent addition was the koala in 2002, to celebrate Animal Crackers' 100th anniversary.

Related Fact: The string on boxes of animal crackers was originally placed there so the container could be hung from a Christmas tree.
