  3. 3. wildlife Some of Australia’s animals are Kangaroos,wild donkeys,desert death adder and many more. There are more than 40 types of kangaroos in Australia. Small kangaroos weigh from 6 to 9 pounds and big red kangaroos weigh around 180 pounds. Big red kangaroos can be as tall as 6 feet. Gray kangaroos can go as fast as 30 miles an hour. Out of all the birds in Australia,and there are many,the Emu is the best known. The Emu is about 5 feet tall. The Emu can run very fast, but the emu can not fly. 1 Wednesday, February 4, 2009
  4. 4. food Some Aboriginal foods are bugs. Bugs were a important source of for a lot of Aborigines. Some bugs they ate were insects such as ants,grubs,caterpillars,and moths. Other ways to get food were by hunting and fishing. When the Aboriginal people hunted they used spears. Some of the spears were just poles without spearheads,and others had detachable spearheads. 2 Wednesday, February 4, 2009

  6. 6. Language 250 native languages were spoken in Australia before the 1800s. Many languages were forgotten after the Europeans arrived. About 30 or 40 are still spoken fluently. Some people speak english as a second language and use the old languages. But most aboriginal people speak mainly english. A lot of Aboriginal learn their traditional languages. 4 Wednesday, February 4, 2009
  7. 7. Living Aboriginal people build houses near the water so they can be near the animals they hunt. Only few of those houses were permanent. As food supplies decreased or the water dried up,people moved in search of new supplies. The size of a bark house depends on how many people need to live in the house. The number of people needed to live in the house is usually between 6 and 25. Single men or family groups share 1 house. 5 Wednesday, February 4, 2009
