It was great, except as I started going through photos I realized I have more than fifty plus favorite animals from Australia – not to mention special category lists such as endangered animals seen or animals endemic (native to a particular area). I still had a list I made from the USA stating the top ten animals I hoped to see in the wild before even moving to Australia.
Platypus! Surprisingly small, the platypus is a unique creature in its own family. A good way to know where to look for them in the water is by the distinctive ripples they leave in the water, as you can see in the photo here.
