    Australian Mammals - The Victorian Fauna

    Discover Victoria's wonderful mammal fauna of 139 species. Find out their names, what they look like, what they eat, how they breed and where and when you can go to see them. As it is not uncommon to find a mammal skull in the bush, you can now identify it by viewing skull images of every Victorian mammal. Also find out what mammals Victoria has lost through extinction and what is now being done to protect the remaining fauna. In addition, you can view the wonderful prints from John Gould's Australian Mammals done in the 1860's.

    Select links on the right to begin your discovery of Victorian Mammals.
