Animal House

Australia hosts its fair share of unusual and often deadly creatures with some unusual traits and characteristics, such as these:

The Australian Lyre Bird is the world’s best imitator; able to mimic the calls of 15 different species of birds and string the calls into a melody. They have also been known to mimic the sound of mobile phones.

The echidna is such a unique animal that it is classified in a special class of mammals known as monotremes, (egg laying species that suckle their young) which it shares only with the platypus.

The Fierce Snake or Inland Taipan has the most toxic venom of any snake in the world. The maximum yield recorded from one bite is 110mg – enough to kill over 100 people.

A baby kangaroo at the time of its birth measures 2cm, is blind and hairless. It finds its way into the mother’s pouch where it stays for months.

A kangaroo being chased by a dog may jump into a dam. If the dog gives chase, the kangaroo may turn towards the dog, then use its paws to push the dogs head underwater in order to drown it.

Emus and kangaroos cannot walk backwards, and are on the Australian coat of arms for that reason.

The male platypus has a poisonous spine that can kill a dog and inflict immense pain on a human. When a specimen of the platypus was first sent to England, it was believed the Australians had played a joke by sewing the bill of a duck onto a rat.

The Box Jellyfish is considered the world’s most venomous marine creature and has killed more people in Australia than stonefish, sharks and crocodiles combined.

The Sydney Funnelweb spider is considered the world’s deadliest spider. It is the only spider that has killed people in less than 2 hours. Its fangs are powerful enough to bite through gloves and fingernails. Humans and monkeys are the only known animals that do not have immunity to the funnelweb’s venom.
