One of Australia’s most popular and photographed icons.

One can see lots of Kangaroos, Snakes, Spiders and all kinds of animals that inhabit the red desert and must take certain precautions such as Don’t drive after the sun goes down because isIt’s the time when kangaroos are most active y they can collide with the cars and smash the windshield and check their shoes every morning to see if some poisonous spider didn’t get between them.
