Wildlife in Australia consists of many unique species, which evolved in Australia in isolation following its separation from the other landmasses at the end of the dinosaur period. Australia is home to the marsupials, a class of mammals who give birth to a partially formed embryo which then develops in a pouch of the mother animal. Examples of marsupials are kangaroos, wallabies and koalas. Parrots can easily be found anywhere in Australia. In certain areas sulphur crested cockatoos are as common as pigeons in Europe and can be found even in cities.
