Keeping Australian native Wildlife as pets can be a most rewarding experience.



Wildlife can enrich one’s life in many varied and unimagined ways, these wonderful animals come with their own unique traits and husbandry requirements.



Australians poor understanding of our unique animals has meant until now only a privileged few have known the joy of keeping an Australian native mammal’s as a pet.



Kangaroos Wallaroos Wallabies Pademelons Quokkas Bettongs Possums Sugar Gliders Bandicoots are just some of many different species available to the public to keep now.

Although limited in availability and restricted numbers.



Once you learn the basics in keeping, and the extent of their needs, you will find they are no more difficult to care for than a dog or cat, Just as with the usual fair of domestic pets not all are suitable for the suburban back yard or unit so do your homework before getting

the wrong Animal .


An extra requirement is appropriate housing being an aviary or pen for the larger types of Wildlife Kangaroos Wallaroos Wallabies Wombats etc., and some knowledge of how to care

for your native pet This information can be obtained by joining the
