That is why Australia is a country of sedition

Terra Australis Incognita (Terra Australis Incognita) - Unknown southern land. It is here, in Australia, that one of the most mysterious countries on Earth is located.

What is on the back of the globe? Or on the back of a flat disk? Now you will see that Australia is not just very far away, but still very seditious.

lost World

Let's start with the smallest animals. Only in Australia, and nowhere else, marsupial species of animals, such as koalas, live. An interesting fact is that koalas, like humans and primates, have a papillary pattern on their fingertips. The fingerprints of koalas are so similar to the fingerprints of people, and they are difficult to distinguish even under an electron microscope. Maybe once they were people?

Marsupial wolves lived in Australia, they are also Tasmanian tigers. But they quickly arranged for the end of the world. Who and why? More about this later.

There is also a wombat - a marsupial comrade similar to a teddy bear.

Well, the most famous species of marsupials, which, unlike the Tasmanian tigers, were lucky to survive to this day - this is a kangaroo.

Why marsupials live only in Australia, write in the comments on this video, for us it is a mystery of nature.

And these are kukabaras. When they scream, it feels like a person is laughing out loud somewhere.

And this is the famous Australian lyre or lyrebird. You can give it a second name - copy-paste bird. She is able to copy absolutely any sound that she hears. Just listen to this, and believe me - this is not a montage, but a real sound:

Only in Australia does the platypus live, which is both an ovipositor and a mammal. Imagine hatched chicks who suck milk. This is not some kind of psychedelic, this is how the procreation of platypuses looks like.

Well, here's another fairly well-known fact: only on this mainland is the largest number of poisonous snakes and spiders in the world. Therefore, there is an unusual censorship: in cartoons and children's programs, spiders cannot be positive or neutral characters, so that children from childhood understand the danger they pose.

And in Australia sometimes it happens like this: ...

This is just the so-called invasion of spiders.

However, knowledgeable people who have lived in Australia for a long time say that bees are much more dangerous there than spiders. And there are fire ants that were imported quite by accident. Or a poisonous scolopendra, up to 30 centimeters long, or a stingray-tail, which is also life-threatening.

The green kingdom is also not friendly. Imagine that nettle has become a whole tree - in Australia it is real. Gimpie-gimpie - grows in the Australian jungle and its burn is called the most painful. A terrifying plant contains one of the most persistent toxins known to man, so burning can last up to two years after contact! Even the story of a man is known who, by inexperience, used a sheet of gimpi-gimpie as toilet paper, but after contact with such a mug, a fatal outcome occurred.

In general, this can be finished. It would seem that Australia is now the world champion in disgusting and dangerous creatures of medium and small sizes.

But actually, in the history of the continent, there were characters and more terrible than spiders with snakes.


250 years ago, the British expedition of James Cook on the Endeavor ship explored and mapped the east coast of Australia.

But they didn’t eat it in Australia, about it some other time.

A fleet of 11 sailing ships sailed from the shores of Britain and arrived on the shores of Australia, bringing mainly exiled convicts. This fleet marked the beginning of the transportation of prisoners from England to Australia, as well as the development and settlement of Australia.

Thus, the natives of Australia are “lucky”, in quotation marks. Their neighbors were mainly British criminals, whom they decided to get rid of in the Old World. In addition, these were young men without an appropriate number of women.

In 1801, French ships, under the command of Admiral Nicolas Boden, explored the southern and western parts of Australia. After which the British decided to declare their formal possession of Tasmania and began to create new settlements in Australia.

In 1826, the governor of New South Wales announced the extension of the power of the British king to the whole mainland. New lands were actively developed by Europeans.

Where did the indigenous people of Australia and Tasmania go?

By 1788, the indigenous population of Australia was, according to various estimates, from 300 thousand to 1 million people, united in more than 500 tribes, the dialect of each tribe was melodically not similar to any of the African, European or Asian languages.
