Australia is famous for its unique wildlife, the product of 45 million years of isolation from other major landmasses. The generally accepted story holds that the exclusion of placental mammals, which were late arrivals to Australia, allowed marsupials and egg-laying monotremes to survive, thrive and diversify into such iconic images of Australia as kangaroos, koalas, wombats and the duck-billed platypus. Australia's birds, reptiles, amphibians and plants likewise exhibit high levels of endemism. The country also has a reputation for producing potentially dangerous wildlife; box jellyfish, blue-ringed octopi and several species of large predatory shark can be found around the island's coast; 'salties', the world's largest crocodiles, can be abundant in areas of the tropical north, and Australia is notoriously home to seven or eight (the number varies depending on who's counting) of the world's ten most venomous land snakes - although wildlife-related human fatalities are extremely rare. Sadly, much of Australia's unique wildlife has already been lost. The country once boasted a marsupial megafauna whose extinction may have been linked to human colonisation 40,000 years ago, along with those of giant flightless birds and the largest lizard ever to have lived. In historic times, the "Tasmanian tiger" or thylacine is just the most high-profile example of a modern extinction event that has seen the complete or near-extinction of many Australian species; in total, Australia has lost 11 mammal species in the past 250 years, representing a quarter of the world's mammal extinctions over that period. Introduced species, habitat loss and pollution of one of Australia's most celebrated natural features, the Great Barrier Reef, continue to threaten the country's wildlife. Most recently, eastern Australia has been devastated by amphibian chytridiomycosis, an emerging disease responsible for the loss of up to seven of the country's frog species over the past two decades. 

 

ANNELID WORMS

Most visitors to the northern Australian tropics are familiar with at least some of the country's leeches which, though irritating and a cause of disgust to many, are essentially harmless and transmit no known diseases. The island is also home to hundreds of species of earthworm, over 300 of which have been described. The Gippsland earthworm of Victoria may well be the world's largest species, with an average length of 80 cm and reports of animals over two metres long.

MOLLUSCS

Australia's most notorious mollusc is the blue-ringed octopus, a small but highly venomous species associated with Queensland's Great Barrier Reef. About 15,000 species of molluscs are known from Australia, where they can be extremely diverse at local scales. For example, around 2,000 species are known from the Sydney area. Snails may be especially abundant in mangrove and in the rainforests of the Wet Tropics.

CRUSTACEANS

Australia's best-known crabs actually occur in Indonesia. The Australian territory of Christmas Island, close to the Indonesian island of Java, is famous for its mass migrations of red land crabs; robber crabs, also found on the island, are the world's largest terrestrial crustaceans. However, the island continent itself is home to numerous species, among them sand bubbler crabs which leave trials of sand 'balls' from which they filter food items, fiddler crabs with enlarged, brightly-coloured claws, and freshwater yabbies, crayfish that can often be felt nipping at people's exposed toes.

ARACHNIDS

As with many of Australia's animals, the country's best-known are its most notorious, the highly venomous Sydney funnel-web and redback spider. In fact, there have been no deaths in Australia from spider bite since an antivenom was developed for the funnel-web's bite in 1981. Australia may have the most diverse spider fauna in the world, including among this number 50 species of tarantula and several of the large, common golden orb weaving spiders. There are Australian scorpions, but these are uncommon in many areas. Most Australian arachnids have yet to be formally described.

INSECTS

Australia is home to the world's largest moths and its heaviest cockroach, one of its largest dragonflies, and large crickets, grasshoppers, mantids, and butterflies. 400 species of butterfly and 300 of dragonfly occur on the island; a single survey of one mountain in the Wet Tropics revealed over 1,500 species of beetle and nearly as many moths, making Australia a haven for anyone with an interest in entomology. Around 10% of the world's described species of ant occur in Australia, with the majority of these species found nowhere else.

ELASMOBRANCHS

The great white shark is one of Australia's most feared natives, though in reality sharks of all species kill an average of one person a year in Australia, considerably fewer than lightning strikes. The country's other species of sharks are among its great tourist draws; areas of Western Australia's coast are important sites for whale shark sightings as well as for manta rays, while reef sharks are common on the Great Barrier Reef. The peculiar carpet sharks or wobbegongs are at their most abundant in Australian waters. A recent DNA analysis of sharks and rays revealed over 50 new species endemic to Australian waters.

BONY FISH

One of the iconic tourist attractions of Australia is the Great Barrier Reef; many divers maintain that Western Australia offers a still better marine experience. It is therefore unsurprising that Australia's coasts boast some of the highest diversities of marine fish in the world. One of the island's strangest fish, however, is mostly associated with temperate waters around southeastern Australia and Tasmania - the bizarrely-adorned but well-camouflaged leafy sea dragon, a variety of seahorse. Australia boasts around 200 species of freshwater fish, a comparatively small number for the country's land area due to its aridity and the variable, often intermittent flow of its streams and rivers. Many of these fish are now under threat from exotic competitors, mostly introduced from Africa.

AMPHIBIANS

Australia has over 220 species of frog, all of which are endemic except for several shared with New Guinea. In the 80 million years since Australia separated from New Guinea, two distinct lineages (recognised as either one or two families, the Myobatrachidae and Limnodynastidae) have evolved that are now endemic to these two islands, with their distribution centred on Australia. New Australian frog species are regularly being described. At the same time, the country's amphibians are under intense pressure from the combined threats of infectious disease, introduced species and climate change. Australia's strangest frogs were undoubtedly the gastric-brooding frogs, two species which swallowed their newly-laid eggs and brooded their tadpoles in the stomach, before releasing them through the mouth as developed froglets. Both species were apparently extinct by the late 1980s, perhaps victims of the same fungal disease that later devastated populations in the Wet Tropics. Although several species thought lost in this epidemic have since been rediscovered, most recently the armoured mist frog, there is now a concern over several species restricted to individual mountaintops that may lose their habitat to climate change. Brown trout and other introduced fish threaten a number of charismatic frog species, including both species of coroborree frog (Australia's 'national frog'). In much of Australia, the commonest frog is now the introduced cane toad; there is little evidence that this species has a negative impact on Australian frogs directly, but where it occurs it can be proportionately much more abundant, and many Australian residents believe anecdotally that native frogs become scarce or disappear after cane toads reach an area.

REPTILES

Australia is well-known as one of the few places in the world that has more venomous snakes than nonvenomous ones, and indeed about 66% of Australia's land snakes are venomous, the result of a relatively recent radiation of snakes from a cobra-like ancestor and the near-absence of mostly harmless rear-fanged snakes from the island. Other Australian reptiles appear to have a long association with the continent; it is thought that both pythons and monitor lizards (goannas) may have originated here before spreading to Asia and Africa. Over 500 species of izards, many of which are naturally adapted to dry, desert-like environments, make up the majority of Australia's reptile fauna, including a small family of legless lizards related to geckos, the Pygopodidae, restricted to Australia and New Guinea. Australia is also home to the pig-nosed turtle, the sole member of its family. Most famous of the island's reptiles, of course, is the world's largest, the saltwater crocodile; a smaller relative, the freshwater crocodile, occurs in northern Australia.

MAMMALS

The three or four species typically referred to as kangaroos are the larger members of a family whose other members are known variously as wallabies, wallaroos, pademelons, bettongs, tree- and rat-kangaroos. These in turn are part of a marsupial radiation that includes koalas, possums, wombats, Tasmanian devils and others, a total of around 140 species. Australia's most widespread native mammal is, however, the echidna, a hedgehog-like relative of the famous duck-billed platypus and representing a quarter of the world's egg-laying mammals (six species of echidna occur only in New Guinea). The placental mammals most associated with Australia are probably dingoes, descendants of Aboriginal dogs, and perhaps the cats, foxes, rabbits and pigs introduced by Europeans with disastrous effects for the native wildlife. In fact, nearly 50% of Australia's mammal fauna consists of native placental mammals. Half of these are bats, and the remainder are native mice, mostly found in north Queensland and the descendants of animals that crossed over from Asia via New Guinea about 4 million years ago.

BIRDS

Among its birdlife, Australia is famous for its emus, widespread in the drier parts of the continent. A distantly-related bird, the striking blue-skinned cassowary, takes its place in the northern rainforest. Many of Australia's bird lineages are found nowhere else or are shared only with New Guinea; these include the aptly-named superb lyrebird and the bowerbirds known for making artificial display areas from variously-coloured pieces of debris. The country also possesses several birds of paradise (like the bowerbirds, less spectacular than their New Guinean relatives), colourful pigeons and numerous finches, a group which may have evolved on the continent, and whose Australian representatives include the zebra finch popular with bird keepers. Australia also has numerous species of parrot, many of them common, including the white and pink galah, the sulphur-crested cockatoo common in the pet trade, and the brilliantly coloured rainbow lorikeet. Although the emu may be the bird most associated with Australia, the country's best-known native bird must surely be the budgerigar, which can often be seen in flocks of over a hundred individuals in inland regions.
