Australian Animals Wild Action

Did you know that barn owls are the most cosmopolitan owl species in the world, found throughout the globe, except Antarctica. Why not put a nest box up in your back yard or school grounds to encourage owls to breed? They’ll control rodent populations free of charge!

Did you know know that the first ever green tree frog discovered was blue in colour? Hence their name Litoria caerulea.

The rainbow lorikeet has a hairy tongue for licking up nectar and pollen. The colorful parrot has proliferated due to mankind planting fruit trees and flowering native plants in suburbs along the East coast of Australia.

Australia does not have any native tortoise, only aquatic freshwater and marine turtles.

The black headed python has a distinctive black head to help it thermoregulate. This beautiful animal is cannibalistic and is very fond of eating it’s own kind!

Frilled Lizards affectionately called ‘frillies’ use their amazing frill to ward off potential threats. These wonderful lizards are now threatened in parts of Queensland due to habitat loss.

Did you know that crocodiles have 66 sharp teeth and that they can continually grow them back again. That’s one busy tooth fairy!

The laughing kookaburra is the World’s largest kingfisher. When they laugh, they are not being funny, they are actually aggressively triangulating their territory.

Mega bats are considered a vital key-stone species for the environment. They play a crucial role in pollinating flowers and germinating seeds.

Kangaroos belong to the Macropod family meaning ‘big foot’. Kangaroos employ a very clever reproductive strategy called embryonic diapause. Why not find out more in a WIld Action Show?
