Post-Reading: answer the questions

(1) Why does Australia have so many plants and animals that can not be found anywhere else in the world?

It lies in its position. Because Australia has been separated from other Continents for millions of years and it has oceans all around it and it is far away form the other continents, animals and plants in the country can’t easily be taken to other countries. What’s more, it has special natural environment and climate. So there are many different kinds of animals and plants from other continents.

Kangaroos give birth to very small and weak young. They are carried in a pocket of skin for several months while they feed on the Mother's Milk and grow stronger.

Australia is the only country in the world which covers an entire continent.
