Subject: Iconic Australian animals.
The Kangaroo and Koala are marsupials carrying their young in a pouch.
Early explorers described them as creatures with heads like deer, standing upright like men, and hopping like frogs! Koalas were described as “New Holland Sloths, torpid, senseless creatures void of elegance”. Emus are the second largest living Bird. In Aboriginal mythology, a creation myth says that the sun was made by throwing an Emu’s egg into the sky.
