One of the main attractions for a lot of visitors to Australia is its wildlife. It is not that it has the largest amount of wildlife species but it has some of the unique species which can not be seen anywhere else. The reason is the unique geography of this country.
Australia is famous for having its own distinct wildlife. There are several reasons for this; the first is that it is not associated to any other land. All the other continents except Antarctica are associated to at least one other continent, which means wildlife can move back and forth between them. In case of Australia they have not been connected to any other land in millions of years so the wildlife there was allowed to evolve in its own way.

Other continents also have wildlife that is just as varied but since the animals can travel they can be seen on more than one continent. Islands typically evolved their own unique wildlife because of their separation while Australia is a big island. In result it has far more unique species than any island would have.
Another reason for having unique wildlife is its geography which is quite different. It is by faraway the flattest continent in the world, it is also made up of very barren desert. In result the animals have had to adapt to this unique environment. There are fewer forests than you would find on the other continents for example most of the animals have had to adapt to live in the open spaces.

Due to this unique environment in Australia you can see some of the species which cannot be seen anywhere in the world. It can be both good and bad; the koala bear for example is regarded as an animal that most tourists would like to see. However this country is also a home for ten most venomous species of snakes in the world. So it also very dangerous as compared to any other country. It’s better to take necessary precautions before you move to witness this amazing wildlife.
