    Mammal Varieties

    Australia has very strange mammals. Aside from placental mammals (baby develops in uterus) found all over the word, Australia also has marsupials (joeys develop in pouch) and monotremes (egg laying).

    Australia's Birds

    Our birds are just as unusual as our other animals. Colourful cockatoos talk, lyre birds mimic any noise including a chainsaw, and giant flightless emus and cassowaries stand as tall as an adult human.

    Aves

    Reptiles & Frogs

    Snakes, lizards, crocodiles, turtles, frogs and friends. These animals have developed amazing adaptations to thrive in extreme conditions, from deserts to rainforests, oceans and waterways.

    Insects & Spiders

    Bugs are also wildlife. Insects, spiders and worms are so tiny we often don't notice their complex social structures as these fascinating creatures play critical roles in keeping the planet healthy.

    Tamanian Devils

    We're not really grumpy, we just sound that way! The best time to see these animals is at feeding time in the afternoon or, better still, join a Wild Night Out when these nocturnal creatures are at their most active. Feeding time is pretty noisy. Resident Tasmanian devils Amaroo and his riends love to let out some truly ear-wrenching grunts and screeches and snarls. With their ferocious vocalisations and their white fangs and red ears glowing in the fire-light, it is not surprising that early European settlers called these adorable Tasmanian critters "devils". But even though Amaroo sounds and looks incredibly fierce - all he really wants is his dinner. Just don't get between him and his food!
