Different types of animals you can find only in Australia
Most of Australia’s wildlife is found nowhere else in the world, making it all more the important to preserve. 87% of our mammal species, 93% of reptiles, 94% of frogs and 45% of our bird species are found only in Australia.
Some of the most interesting animals in Australia are the kangaroo, koala, echidna, dingo, platypus, wallaby and wombats. Australia has more than 378 mammal species, 828 bird species, 4000 fish species, 300 lizard species, 140 snake species, two crocodile species and around 50 types of marine mammals.
These animals are often difficult to spot in the wild, but you are guaranteed to see them in zoos and wildlife parks across our major cities and regional areas.
