Australian Wildlife: The Kangaroo

Macropus-rufus-red-kangaroo-restingThe Australian Wildlife features the kangaroo, a large mammal growing over six feet tall, known primarily for its hopping movement. It belongs to the class of marsupials, from the Macropodidae family. This name is derived from macropods, literally, “large feet.” The name kangaroo also embraces several kinds of mammals in the genus Macropus. This is used to denote the red kangaroo, the eastern gray kangaroo, the western gray and the antilopine kangaroo that is found in Australia and parts of Papua New Guinea. While this animal remains to be a curiosity to most parts of the Western world, it is the national animal of Austral and features largely in its national emblems, symbols and even in pop culture.

General Features

Australian wild dog the Dingo

Dingo is a carnivorous animal (member of the canidae family) that closely resembles a wolf. It is mainly found in Australia though scientific research has closely linked it to some dog species found in East Asia. Other than Dingo, it is also widely known as the Australian Dingo, Australian native dog, warrigal or the decker dog.

Facts about the Australian Dingo
Currently Dingoes thrive in the wild; however historians believe that initially they were domesticated species before they eventually returned to the wild.

animals dog dingoAustralian Dingo Appearance
Generally, Dingoes resemble the ordinary dogs. Their average height ranges from 19 to 23 inches. A mature Dingo weighs about 50 to 55 pounds. Their fur coat is yellowish-orange in color with a white patch one each of its legs and a bushy tail. One unique feature about the Dingoes is that they do not have claws unlike other dog breeds. Dingoes are not known to bark and in case of danger they resort to howling just like the wolves.

Australian Dingoes reproduction
Dingoes mate during the autumn season. They are one of the few animal species that are known to possess strong feelings for their mates. They are also known to stick to one mating partner for their entire lifetime. Their gestation period is 60 to 69 days. A pregnant female gives birth to 5 or 6 puppies.

What do Australian Dingoes eat?
Naturally, Dingoes are carnivorous animals. They mainly prey on dusky rats, red kangaroos, lizards and European rabbits. However, currently due to the increase in the levels of the human wildlife conflicts in Australia, Dingoes have been reported to attack domestic livestock.

Australian Dingo Predators
Dingoes are one of the most efficient wild predators, but on the other hand, they also fall victims on the other side of the food chain. The main animals known to prey on Dingoes include the wedge-tailed eagles and salt water crocodiles

Separated from the Australian mainland some 9,000 years ago, the Island has somehow managed to escape the introduction of pests such as foxes and rabbits, so its wildlife has flourished, creating a veritable Noah’s Ark of Australian wildlife. Kangaroos and other marsupials far outnumber the Island’s 4400 permanent residents – an eclectic local community of farmers, artists, ecologists, fishermen and adventurers.

The Island is also famous for its honey which comes from the only remaining strain of pure Ligurian bees in the world. Stop by the Island Bee hive in Kingscote where you can purchase all sorts of quirky honey-related souvenirs as well as see the bees in production, and don’t miss the famous honey ice-cream at Clifford’s Honey Farm.

The other surprise is that while kangaroos may be ubiquitous, the Island’s wildlife is far more varied than its name suggests. Many of these species of plants and animals are either threatened or exist nowhere else in Australia. In the space of one day, you may well come across koalas, wallabies, goannas, echidnas and brush-tailed possums, and maybe even the elusive platypus. You can watch Little Penguins waddling home after a day out at sea, or take a cruise and swim with the Island’s resident pods of dolphins. Bird-lovers will find some 270 species of birds among the diverse range of habitats, including the rare Glossy Black Cockatoo, an endangered species found only on KI.

Wild Animal As A Pet

Many people like to keep animals in their homes as pets. These pets provide them companionship, reduce their stress, encourage playfulness and provide them with an unconditional love.

Some people like to keep a wild animal in their home. But wild animals often create some problems by searching escape routes or displaying abnormal behaviors like paw sucking and head weaving or pacing etc. Some of them become quiet and interact less with their environs as time passes. Constantly stressed and worried animals are really unpredictable and extremely unreliable. Therefore, you must know about some of the hazards of wild animals that are kept as pets and also why it is useful to employ an animal attack attorney.

Most of the people who keep a wild animal as their pet do not have the proper know-how as they are not trained in keeping and managing dangerous wild animals. This can be very risky for both the keepers and bystanders.
Many big and powerful animals are popular as pets such as tigers and lions. They have sharp canine teeth so are able to inflict injury or even death. Moreover, the smaller animals can impose severe bites and scratches. Also, there are numbers of animals that transmit deadly venoms. Some animals may have diseases that can be transferred to human beings.

The dangers of wild animals that are kept as pets transfer to humans by their direct attack because of the incapability of their owners to maintain a control. Furthermore, if they escape, they can transmit the disease. The risks can relatively increase due to improper safety measures, excessive and wrong handling, poor animal`s condition, and lack of keeper`s expertise.

Hundreds of different cases of wild animal pets` attacks have been filed that caused human injury, illness and death and they keep on occurring at a considerable rate. Thus, if you are a victim of a wild animal pet attack, you should hire the services of an efficient animal attack attorney.
