Dear MEL Topic Readers,

Before humans, Australia was colonized by rats

What animals were there the most before humans started to live in Australia?

You may think marsupials like the kangaroo or koala whose newborn is fed and protected in its mother’s pouch until it is completely developed. Yes, there are many of them, but they were outnumbered by rodents, such as rats and mice from Asia and Indonesia millions of years ago.

They were new to the continent where there were neither threatening predators nor direct competitors. They then colonized the continent, diversified, and evolved. There are unique species of rodents in Australia, such as swimming rats that eat fish and tree-living rat that chew on leaves.

Enjoy reading and learning about the first colony in Australia.
