PHOTOS OF THE WEEK: Amazing animals of Australia !

Australia, known for it’s strange animals and wildlife are so unique to Australia, that we thought it would be interesting to highlight these animals:
The “HEDGEHOG” is considered one of the most loved animals of Australia, and as of lately, they have been showing up in the United States as pets. Could you really cuddle this animal?
The “KANGAROO”, Probably Australia’s most famous animal, is definitely unique. It carries it’s babies in their pouch until they get too big.
The famous and cute Koala, is one that everybody loves. With the tremendous fires that Australia experienced the last 2 years, one of the most heart-wrenching things was to see these cute little animals, trying to escape the big fires, and some just couldn’t get away. But, there were lots of people trying to save them all. Here’s a video showing the rescue of these animals in Australia:

Animals of Australia - Real Word

Yes, this is for real. The Australian Goliath Spider. EWwww!
It was spotted on a beach in Broome, Western Australia, by the Reddit users’ mum and girlfriend – and has people online very confused.
One commented “What the heck?” at the sight of the tentacled being, while another wrote: “Quite the creature”.
Many thought it was an alien, with one Reddit user writing: “They look like a bacteriophage or some sort of alien.”
Another added: “What part of that thing is the mouth?” Eventually an answer was reached, as Reddit concluded it was an anemone flipped upside-down that had washed up on the beach.
A Reddit user wrote: “The armed anemone. Also called the striped anemone”.
Followed by “I think you are correct” from another commenter.
The armed anemone is common in the waters off Western Australia.
