I’ve lived in country Australia for 75 years. I’ve seen every one of these creatures. The large insects are stick insects and are completely harmless. The large lizard is a goanna and while not happy if approached, they usually just keep to themselves. They love to run up trees. Also, it’s actually illegal to keep kangaroos as pets. The picture showing a guy with a kangaroo in his kitchen, is probably showing a wildlife volunteer raising a joey until it’s able to be released into the wild.

I love Australia, a wonderfully diverse country, but we really need to do something in the animal conservation area. Come on state and federal governments. Pull your collective fingers out and save our wildlife!

Reading some of these comments below, I'm struck by how many pampered little princesses there are in the world. Hey, so we've got a few bugs and lizards here in Australia. Boy, and here's me without my violin....

The first week I was in Australia a hailstorm hit Brisbane with stones the size of softballs. They went through cars. It looked like a war.

Australia is truly amazing! Now, just an observation: I guess it's OK to use the pronoun "her" for a country but NOT OK to use it on female humans. Just sayin'.

james parrillo, thanks for your question. The stick insects can be found everywhere. They fascinate me. I just love them. Goannas mostly live in rural areas because there’s no food for them readily available in cities. They are carnivores, but only attack humans if they feel threatened. They can be a nuisance when they get into chicken pens and eat the eggs. Eggs are their favourite food and if they run up a tree with a bird’s nest, they’ll eat the eggs, and the chicks if any are hatched. The pic of the snake with the cane toads is interesting. I’m not familiar with the breed of snake, but it could be a water python. Cane toads are revolting creatures. They were introduced into Australia to control the cane beetles which were decimating the sugarcane. They breed prolifically and have migrated south from far North Queensland to Sydney. They have poison glands above the eyes and if approached, they spray the poison. Thousands of family pets have been killed by these horrible things.

There is no question about the road formation from the given sign. It is a very thoughtful traffic tool. Thank you, Christine, James's wife

Lynda Wild, That is quite a picture you have of America. Are you counting the crimes people commit with stolen and illegal guns? I am supposing that most gun owners are responsible, hunting and fishing, and protecting the family from those who want to somehow break the law. Thank you, Christine, James's wife

Joy Holbrook, Thank you for verifying that you have seen them. They each looked very real, not like camera filters. However, I did not know if the animals are found all over Australia or limited in range. Did you need to go to a particular area to see them? Thank you, Christine, James's wife
