Australia has been separated from the rest of the world by the ocean for more than 200 million years. This has allowed the development of unique and diverse flora and fauna. A total of about 22,000 different plant species grow in Australia.
A large part of them – about 85 percent – are only found Down Under. The fauna on the Red Continent is equally unique. There is a variety of birds, fish, snake, crocodile, and mammal species. However, the most famous is Australia’s marsupials.
The best known is the kangaroo. It decorates Australia’s coat of arms together with the emu. There are about 60 different kangaroo species Down Under. Kangaroos have strong extended hind legs and a muscular tail that is usually covered with fur.
The marsupials are only about 3 cm tall at birth. They spend the following eight months nursing in their mother’s pouch. A full-grown red giant kangaroo can jump almost 10 meters and reach a speed of up to 70 km/h. Kangaroos rarely need to drink water because they consume the majority of their fluid supply through food.
