AUSTRALIA has the world’s biggest collection of alpines, the native woodlands that surround and shelter the Great Barrier Reef.
Here’s a look at the animals that live in the Australian outback.
Alpine man Alpines are native to Tasmania, New South Wales and the Northern Territory.
They are the tallest trees in Australia, reaching 6.8 metres (23 feet) tall.
Their short, dark grey skin is light grey in colour.
They weigh about 200 kilograms (440lbs) and are the largest tree in Australia.
They have two pairs of large eyes, two pairs on each side of the head, and two pairs at the back of the neck.
They have an enormous tongue, a pair of sharp teeth, and a long, long tongue.
In the wild, alpine men live in packs, and are often accompanied by other males.
They also mate with females that are the same sex as the male, and they also mate sometimes with members of the same species.
They spend most of their time in trees, and rarely, if ever, roam the landscape.
“We are an animal of nature, and our lifestyle is very unique,” Dr David MacLeod, a member of the Great Pyrenees Reserve Board said.
Alpacas An alpino is an alpine or snowy animal that lives in the alpine zone of Australia, in the Great Dividing Range.
Alpacas are large herbivores, and have long, thin tails and large, furry ears.
The female alpina lays about six to eight eggs, but they can lay up to 50 eggs at a time.
Raccoon Raccoons are one of the most diverse species of cat in the world, with different species found in every state in Australia and in a few remote parts of New South Guinea.
Racoons live in trees with thick bark and large claws.
They often feed on insects and birds, and also on small mammals and fish.
Mountain goat A mountain goat is a large, herbivorous animal that can reach up to 40 kilograms (86 lbs) in weight.
They eat both grasses and roots.
They can also be found grazing in scrub.
Rottweiler “Rottweilers are a big, wild breed of dog with a very long neck,” Dr MacLeod said.
“They are also known as the mountain goat’s favourite food, and one of our most popular breeds.”
They live in grasslands, forests, and scrublands, and can be found in more than 70 countries.
Great white shark The Great White shark is a giant predatory fish that is about as long as a man, and has a snout and a tail that are longer than a man’s.
Great whites live in tropical waters in all parts of the world.
They typically live about 2.5 to 3 metres (8 to 10 feet) long and weigh up to 6 tonnes (15 tons).
Blue fin tuna The blue fin tuna is a delicacy in Japan, where it is often called kamikaze tuna.
Blue fin tuna are found in the ocean off Japan, but the Japanese say it is actually a rare species, because the Japanese have only just introduced it into the ocean.
Koala The Koala is the smallest mammal in Australia with a body length of around 1.5 metres (5.5 feet).
It lives in tropical and subtropical waters in Australia as well as in the Atlantic Ocean.
Kangaroo The Kangaroo is a marsupial marsupials most closely related to the Australian bushbuck, and is native to Australia.
The Kangaroo lives in grassland habitats in South Australia and Tasmania.
Dingo Dingo is a member, or cousin, of the great white shark, and most closely associated with Australia.
It is native mainly to Australia and New Zealand, but also found in Tasmania, the South Pacific and northern parts of South America.
Rohan Rohan is a small marsupium, with a head about 2 metres (6 feet) in length.
It has a long and short neck, a long body and short legs, and an extremely long tail.
Kangaroos Kangarooses are marsupiies found in temperate and tropical rainforests, forests and grasslands in Australia from the south coast to the north coast.
Kangos are about 2 to 3 meters (8 feet) high and weigh between 25 and 30 kilograms (70 to 75 pounds).
Rooibos Rooiboos are an endangered species of marsupius, which is a tree-dwelling marsupian.
ROOIBOS are found mostly in temper
