From sly lizards to dangerous dingos, the land down under has always been teeming with fascinating wildlife. Australian Animals allows you to explore this wild kingdom for yourself. Focus your binoculars on http://ausinternet.com/ettamogah/animals.htm and wander through a natural bushland setting of more than 20 acres. Join your guide Etta the Koala as you meet native Australian animals such as emus, echidnas and the ever-bouncing kangaroos. The site has maps, poems, dot-to-dot pictures and word searches. You'll even learn how to make a climbing koala or a jumping kangaroo! Don't forget to sing along with "The Kookaburra Song" and listen to "Waltzing Matilda." It's time to answer the outback's call of the wild!
