Australia is not only scenically stunning but also has unique wildlife that can only be found on this continent. For example, 83% of all mammals and 93% of all amphibians live exclusively on the Australian continent. In addition, due to the different climatic zones of Australia, you can observe a wide variety of animal species. Among them, you will find cute but also extremely poisonous animals. Probably the most famous animals in Australia are the kangaroos and cuddly koalas, which you will find during your travel through Australia primarily in the eucalyptus trees in Victoria and Queensland. Since the little marsupials need 20 hours of sleep a day, you will most likely find them sleeping. No less cute are the wombats and short-tailed kangaroos quokkas on Rottest Island. Unfortunately, these cute little animals are threatened with extinction, which is why it is especially important to protect this species.
Ever heard of the redback spider or the Sydney funnel-web spider? These two spider species are among the most poisonous spiders in Australia and a bite can be fatal. But we can reassure you a bit. There is now an antidote for the venom of the Sydney funnel-web spider. Australia also has dangerous animals such as snakes, crocodiles, sharks, and the stingray, which gained its fame through the death of "Crocodile Hunter". As you can see, the fauna of Australia is quite adventurous! As a matter of principle, during your trip through Australia, please make sure to take tours that focus on animal conservation. After all, the fascinating Australian wildlife should be preserved for a long time.
