Australian animals coloring pages
The continent and country of Australia is home to many unique animals that are not found anywhere else on the planet. These free sheets feature cute animals with simplistic designs that are great for children’s art projects.
In the first 3 Australian animals coloring pages below we have the animals (from left to right) – Numbat, kangaroo, and a quokka.
Numbats are endangered marsupials that are only found in Western Australia. They live on termites and have also been known as banded anteaters. There are said to be only 1000 numbats left in the wild today.
The quokka can only be found on Rottenest Island, also in Western Australia. They are small kangaroo-like creatures that grow to just over half a meter in length. Unlike kangaroos, they do have the peculiar ability to be able to climb trees if they need to.
