A magnificently illustrated, authoritative and entertaining compendium of the abundant and unique animals that live on the Australian continent today.
There is nothing to beat the extraordinary wildlife of Australia. Its colourful parrots, venomous snakes, abundance of hopping marsupials and the strange, egg-laying Platypus-these are just a few of the players in a story that began hundreds of millions of year ago. Superbly illustrated, with over 550 colour photographs by renowned wildlife photographer Jiri Lochman, this magnificent compendium, reveals the fascinating worlds of the animals that live on this ancient land but remain largely unnoticed.
