Managing Invasive Species

There’s plenty of freshwater and sea turtles that can be seen all around Australia. Heading to The Great Barrier Reef provides you the most effective probability to swim with wild turtles such because the loggerhead, hawksbill and the rarer inexperienced turtle. For an incredible expertise head to Bundaberg throughout turtle hatching season to look at the infant turtles head to the sea for the first time after hatching. This carnivorous marsupial is endangered and its population continues to be lowering. Sadly they’re struggling with a facial cancer that is contagious. Sugar gliders are small marsupials which are pretty common in north and jap coastal areas.

You’re extra prone to see them in Shark Bay in WA or in Queensland. Dugongs are also called sea cows or the “Lady of The Sea” and are considered the inspiration behind tales of mermaids.

Indian Chameleon

animals species


A Goanna is a sort of monitor lizard which varies in dimension from just 20cm lengthy to 2 metres! Depending on what source you employ there are regarded as either 20 or 30 species of monitor lizard, 15 or 25 of which may be found in Australia.

They live in woodlands and glide between the trees at evening trying to find food. Snakes are fairly frequent in Australia and little question you’ll bear in mind that Australia has a great deal of lethal ones! There are about one hundred forty snake species present in Australia, 32 of that are sea snakes. And although about one hundred Australian snakes are venomous only 2 of them may kill you (although it’s extremely unlikely!). The ones pictured under are the frequent tree snake, also referred to as the yellow-bellied black snake, inexperienced tree snake or grass snake. They’re most unlikely to chunk, but if they do they aren’t venomous.

If you propose on doing a little underwater exploration of the Great Barrier Reef during your trip to Australia then you’re fairly prone to come across a large clam or two. Giant clams can weigh as much as a whopping 200kg and might reside for a hundred years. Dugongs are just like manatees in look and the only marine mammal which is a herbivore . Dugongs are threatened with extinction so if you do see one you’re very lucky.
