Crocodile - Waiting for their prey, crocodiles creep around in muddy water and then jump out to catch their next meal. Crocodiles generally eat fish, mammals or birds. Their tail helps them move fast both in the water and on land. Some are considered the largest reptiles in the world, as crocodiles can be as long as twenty three feet! Others are only six feet long as adults. They can live for as long as one hundred years too. Although they pose a threat to humans, humans threaten crocodiles as well.

Kangaroo - Red kangaroos live in the arid plains of central Australia and are the largest surviving marsupials anywhere in the world - they can grower taller than a full grown man! Marsupials give birth to their babies early and then carry them in protected pouches until they can survive on their own. Red kangaroos' babies, or joeys, remain in their mother's pouches for up to a year while she nurses and nurtures them. Red kangaroos are herbivores; this means they only eat plants.  They're nocturnal and spend their days sleeping or resting.

Koala - Koalas are marsupials solely native to Australia, because only there, these adorable animals find the food conditions they need. Koalas depend on eucalyptus trees and these bears are able to tolerate the slightly poisonous leaves without difficulty. A full-grown male can grow up to 85 cm and weigh up to 14 kg. With their brownish to silver-grey fur, their bushy ears and their button eyes, koalas are an inspiration for many cuddly toys and in particular teddy bears. Along with kangaroos, koalas are considered the symbol of Australia.

Great White Shark - This deep-sea predator, that can reach a length of up to nine metres and weigh more than two tons, feeds on fish, pinnipeds, octopus and turtles. Great white sharks are not only the largest hunting sharks; they also rank among the fastest fish in the oceans their streamlined body allows them to swim up to 32 kilometres per hour. When catching prey, these sharks precisely attack with roughly 50 triangular teeth. Great white sharks are loners. They can travel more than 65 kilometres a day and can reach over 40 years of age.
