animals hunted

Animals in this order live in Australia, Tasmania, and New Guinea, and also inhabit some of the nearby Pacific islands.

Farmers consider many Australasian carnivorous marsupials pests because they prey on livestock such as sheep and chickens. Some animals have been collected for zoos, but none of the animals in this order have been significantly hunted for their fur. In times past, some may have been hunted for food by aboriginal peoples.
