The pythons found in Australia are not just huge but they are very powerful also, so much that they can pull a wallaby upwards. Wallaby is said to be of the same family from which the Kangaroos belong but they are a little small in size. But still, don’t you feel that pulling wallaby from such a height is a very difficult task.

Big crocodiles can be seen walking on the pavements of the busy city areas in case of flood or heavy rainfalls. When we say big crocodiles, we mean really big as this 6-foot crocodile which was found at Queensland Parks by the rescue team and Wildlife team during the floods.
