It took millions of years and a diverse range of habitats for Australian wildlife to evolve into what we see today. The result is many of the world’s most striking and beautiful animals, including some that are stranger than fiction.
In 'Australian Animals', acclaimed artist Matt Chun showcases the remarkable Australian species that have captured the imagination of the world. From the iconic cockatoo to the elusive platypus, from the great white shark to the tiny feathertail glider, 'Australian Animals' has been carefully curated to inform and entrance readers of all ages.
