Super Snakes

Australia is home to around 140 species of land snakes and 32 species of sea snakes. Most are tricky to spot, so you will need to be a super-snake-detective.

Fact Snake

Snakes have forked tongues, which they use to ‘smell’ the air around them. This also helps them to hunt for their food.


Foxes love the forest because there are plenty of other animals to eat, but you might see one in your garden or even wandering in town in the early hours. They like to hunt for food in bins!

Fact Fox

Foxes can run at nearly 50kms an hour – that’s even faster that Usain Bolt!


There are many different types of mice found across Australia, including house mice, field mice and hopping mice.

Fact Mouse

Forests provide excellent places for mice to live because there are loads of nuts and berries for them to eat, and plenty of places to hide.


There are eleven species of owl found in every state and territory in Australia. The Southern Boobook is both the smallest and most common owl in the country.

Fact Owl

Owls can only see straight ahead. However they can turn their heads three-quarters of the way round, so they can look in just about all directions!


The Gruffalo has large orange eyes to help him see clearly. Many nocturnal animals like owls also have excellent eyesight which helps them to find their prey.

Fact Gruffalo

The Gruffalo has purple prickles all over his back. Echidnas also have prickles called spines, which protect them from other animals who might want to eat them.
