Australia has a wild variety of animals that are found no where else on earth (unless you count zoos). Since a few of them start with the letter W we thought it would make for a great post for the A-Z Challenge and for the Saturday Snapshots as well. Below are some of the photos that we have taken of Australian Fauna that started with the letter W.
This is a Rock Wallaby that I found along a bushwalking/hiking trail in Central Australia in 1994. Its not common to see them in the wild but he didn't seem too worried about my presence.
This is a wombat which is a vegetarian marsupial that lives in burrows. It would be somewhat similar to much bigger version of a groundhog. They are mostly nocturnal so you usually only see them in zoos or wildlife parks.
Here is a group of wallabies and wallaroos.I have trouble telling them apart but I believe there are some of each in the photo.
These guys are posing for the camera.
This one is a little shy.
"I'm trying to blend in. Can you see me huh?
We had a lot of fun visiting all of the Australian wildlife during our visits to Australia as you don't normally get to see anything beside emus and kangaroos in most zoos in America. It was nice being able to get some good photos on the last trip so we could share with you. Which one is your favourite?
