Australia – the land at the end (or the begining) of the world, a continent for itself with specific characteristics, flora and fauna. We all know what’s the first thing we think about right? Everything in Australia wants to kill you. The unique animal species living there which is also one of the first things on our minds when we think of this country – kangaroos for example, they seem friendly and not particularly dangerous at first glance.
