Of course there is an stupendously large amount of introduced plants across Australian human habitats; some to provide food, many to plant in our gardens as ornamentals, and many that escape as weeds.
While most Australians do not like to see snakes around their homes, many lizards become regular visiting features of urban areas.
And of course Australian urban areas are host to many familiar birds. Some are welcomed and watched, while others are not so popular...
Despite the constant threat of dogs, Brush Turkeys manage to survive. Pictured is the huge mound of Australian Brush Turkey. These huge nests have become quite common in urban backyards in south-east Queensland, much to the annoyance of gardeners. Well, I guess they were here first.

And of course the biggest family of birds on the continent includes many species that visit homes and gardens.
Common across woodland, farms and even in the centre of the biggest city, is the Australian Magpie.
For many urban dwellers, the noise of native possums running around on their roof is annoying - but look how cute this Pseudocheirus peregrinus, 'Common Ringtail' is!
