Do you want to meet some of Australia’s amazing and unusual native animals???

    Really enjoyed this interview…..interesting information…like who would have thought the lazy koala would be
    so promiscuous or the female kangaroo can provide two types of milk while nursing……great stuff. Looking forward to the next edition. Does the koala and kangaroo have any predators?

      Yes WILD wild animals right??? Good question as regards predators. For the koala – goannas, dingoes, owls, eagles and pythons are all their predators but mainly only on the juvenile koalas. For the kangaroo they longer have any predators in Australia. Sadly their predators have become extinct which includes the marsupial lion, the Megalania (a giant goanna) and the Wonambi (a large prehistoric snake) > look them up!!! Incredible animals sadly lost forever. ❤️❤️❤️

    What an amazing woman! I found this very interesting and informative and hope it goes well for Wendy and her plans. I hope all these animals are coping with the drought which is the worse apparently in living memory!

      Thanks Sally! Yes I hope and am sure it will go well for Wendy too. The drought crisis here is real. Another alarm bell for us to respect and take care of our Earth. ❤️
