The fauna of Australia is, taking the animal kingdom as a whole, extremely rich and varied, it is also more distinctively local in its general character than that of any other large area of the earth's surface. But, though the strictly Australian character exists throughout, the Fauna varies considerably in different parts of the country, the variations being evidently caused in some instances by differences in soil and climate, and in others by contiguity to other zoological regions.
