I've always had to describe the cassowary to my foreign friends as 'if you cross an emu with a peacock'. My language is usually a little more colourful, but they always understand. A French friend didn't believe me when I told him to stay away from the cassowary - until the bird broke his camera and cut his arm. Boy can run! LOL.

I couldn't remember the name for wombat; I kept thinking wallaby. Shouldn't irukandji be accepted for the box jellyfish?

Doesn't irukandji just refer to the species of box jelly that's no bigger than the end of your little finger?

I was hoping to see a possum, too. Until I began taking quizzes on this site I never knew Australia has an animal called a possum, as opposed to our American opossum which most of us call a possum anyway.

We do! We have 23 different species of possums in Australia!

100% in less than sixty seconds, but being Australian helps. The only one that had me scratching my head for five seconds was the quokka.

You have got to give it to our friends down in Australia, they have some wonderfully unique, fierce animals on their continent.
