FYI... about the Platypus, with Growling Grass Frog...
The Platypus, one of the world’s most unusual animals, is often described as a living fossil - a furry, warm-blooded, egg-laying mammal which retains some features of reptiles. Platypus, living only in Australia, are not considered to be a threatened species, however they are vulnerable to the continuing degradation of suitable water bodies and burrowing habitat. The Growling Grass Frog, also known as Green and Golden Frog and Southern Bell Frog, is one of the largest frog species in Australia. It is nationally vulnerable and one of Victoria’s most endangered frogs. Threats to many frog species include loss of habitat (from urban spread), drought and reduced habitat quality.
FYI... about Eastern Grey Kangaroo...
Eastern Grey Kangaroos are found throughout Australia, inhabiting open grassland, open woodland and forested coastal areas. Kangaroos are one of the largest species of marsupial. A male Eastern Grey Kangaroo can grow to 1.5m tall with a 1m long tail and can weigh up to 85kg. They are herbivores, and predominately a grazing animal, eating grass, leaves and roots.
FYI... about the Bare-nosed Wombat...
The Bare-nosed Wombat, also known as the Common Wombat, has the nickname ‘the bulldozer of the bush’. These Australian marsupial mammals have very short muscular legs and are amongst the world’s largest burrowing animals. They are the closest relative to the Koala. The main habitat for this wombat is the temperate forest-covered areas of south-eastern Australia. The species is often found in mountainous areas. Wombats prefer to dig their main shelters on slopes above creeks and gullies, and feed in grassy clearings. Unlike the endangered Hairy-nosed Wombat, the Bare-nosed Wombat is not considered to be vulnerable. However, individual animals are still at risk from feral dogs and road vehicles The most serious health problem affecting wombats in Australia is mange, a systemic problem caused by a small mite
FYI... about Koalas...
The lovable Koala is an Australian marsupial that is mostly nocturnal and eats only eucalypt gum leaves. Habitat loss is the greatest problem facing koalas. The main reasons for this are landclearing, bushfires and diseases of the eucalypts. Other threats are dog attacks and road accidents. Koalas are listed as ‘Vulnerable’ in some states of Australia.
