A. Danger for animals
1. Wallabies are from the kangaroo family. They get around by hopping and they raise the young in a pouch. They are great plant eaters, farmers often kill them. They want to save the grass for their sheep. Wallabies have also been killed for their fur.
2. This creature is often called a koala bear. It is not a bear! It is a marsupial, like kangaroos, raising its young in a pouch. The koala is a plant eater, and almost all of its diet is made up of the leaves of eucalyptus trees. These leaves are poisonous, but the koala has special substances in its stomach that neutralize the poison.
3. The platypus is often seen in eastern Australia. In Tasmania the platypus is common in the lakes of the Central Highlands and in rivers and streams of the south, southwest and northwest coasts. Platypus is not fast and prefers slow streams. It lives in a burrow on the banks.
4. Echidnas are 30-45 cm long and weigh 2-5 kg. The body is covered with cream coloured spines. These spines, which reach 50 mm in length, are in fact modified hairs. The fur of the Tasmanian species is thicker and longer than that of echidnas in warmer areas and often looks like the spines.
5. The Red Kangaroo travels in groups and feeds mainly on grass. It can speed along at 35 miles per hour, jump 10 feet high and leap 30 feet. A baby kangaroo is bom only about the size of a coin. It stays in his mother’s pouch for 8 months. Young kangaroos will return to their mothers pouch even after they are old enough to feed on their own.
