Why does Australia have many unique species? Australia has been isolated for a long period of time, so there has been little exchange of animals with the rest of the world. For example there no hoofed animals native to Australia, yet monotremes are found in Australia and New Guinea. Australia’s climate is often unpredictable. There may be long period of drought, frequent floods, or fires. These sorts of problems require unique adaptations. For example the Red kangaroo can suspend the development of its embryo until conditions improve.
