Residents of the Greater Brisbane Region are privileged to live in one of the richest natural environments in Australia. From high mountain rainforest to the barest cityscape, the region is home to an astonishing variety of wild creatures, large and small, seen and unseen.
Worms, snails, spiders, insects, fish, frogs, lizards, snakes, birds and mammals, many of them rare or endangered, survive alongside the region's 2.8 million human inhabitants, sharing their homes, backyards, parks and bushland. Whether biting ants, brilliantly coloured birds, or tiny marsupial mice, the native animals are impossible to avoid.
This new edition of one of Australia's most successful wildlife guides features 100 extra pages of easy-to-read information and hundreds of brilliant, new full colour photographs. It describes the animals most likely to be encountered by residents and naturalists alike, and is a must-have book for anyone who cares about Australian wildlife.
