The uniqueness and diversity of the fauna of Australia cannot leave you indifferent. On the mainland of the Southern Hemisphere of the Earth, 200 thousand species of animals live, 80% of which are endemic. The secret of this feature lies in the isolation of local representatives of biological organisms. One of the most famous and widespread endemics of the mainland are kangaroos, koalas, platypuses, wombats, echidnas and others. In addition, 180 species of marsupials live in this area (there are 250 in total). The most specific representatives of the continent are Gould monitor, quokka, wallaby, maned duck and giant flying couscous.
