There is already a thread for Australian birds, so why not start a thread for Australian wildlife?

Here my first photo for it:

Are we counting Lizards as wildlife?

This was on the road between Pt Hedland & Karratha. A big boy, just finished breakfast.

Great idea, Lyn.

The Eastern Bettong became extinct on mainland Australia in the 1920's due to the introduction of the Red Fox but in Canberra we now have a very successful breading colony protected in a very large area by a predator proof fence.

Yes of course, this is Australian wildlife too. I wonder what he has eaten.

Great to hear that such a cute animal is on a come back.

This photo is a couple of years old, made with my Canon A75. A possum that lived in our shed:

What a cute possum!

To keep the ball rolling, here is an Antechinus, a small carnivorous marsupial that was hiding in a crevice in a large boulder.

Possibly unknown to this cute creature, a python was sunning itself at the base of the boulder and by the lump in its body, it looks like it had recently feasted on maybe a pademelon or possum.

Both taken in the Lamington National Park.

Cheers

Dennis
