Ok here are some interesting facts about Yabbies.
They are native to Australia, and are freshwater crustacean.
The adult size of a Yabbie is 4.7 inches,sometime they can be
bigger as much as 7 inches, and can be found in small creeks 
or dams.

You can eat them, but i have never tired one.  Some people make will 
make a salad and put some yabbies in.

In the school holidays over here you will often see young kids trying to 
catch them.  You can keep them as pets.

The mother yabbie will often eat some of there babies. They can walk
backwards with there tail tucked in.

If they loose there claw they can regrown the claw back, thats why you will
sometimes see one small claw and one big claw.

So if your from Australia or just visiting, why don't you take your children to a
creek or a dam and see if you can catch a Yabbie.

Please leave a comment and tell me what you think about today's post, or if there 
is any Australian animal you would like to know more about.

I do hope you like the pictures i find them very interesting.

Koalas are one of our native animals.
They love to eat gum leaves.  Here in
Australia we have gum trees everywhere.

Where my daughter goes to school, they have a lot of gum trees to you will often see them in the trees.

Do not be fooled by there cutest, they have very sharp claws that they use to climb trees.

This one that I'm holding is very young and is happy eating the gum leaves while I am holding her.

They sleep up to 16 to 20 hours a day.

If  you are ever in Australia and would like to hold a Koala there are a lot of places to go.

Enjoy this is only one of many Native Animals I will be showing you.
