The animals found in the Australian State of Queensland are diverse and extraordinary. Detailed descriptions of animals, maps of distribution and endangered species status combine with images to provide a valuable reference that can be used in urban, bush and coastal environments. The content has been developed by the scientists at the Queensland Museum in collaboration with scientists from our major partner, Museum Victoria, and all other Australian Museums.
This app holds descriptions of over 560 species encompassing birds, fishes, frogs, lizards, snakes, mammals, turtles, freshwater, marine and terrestrial invertebrates, spiders and insects including butterflies. From animals found on Queensland’s coral reefs, in rock-pools, in tropical rainforests, in deserts and in the suburbs, the habitats are hugely varied but only represent a tiny fraction of the true diversity of life in this large State. Our scientists will continue to add new species and refine this app over time.
This app is one of a suite of field guides for each state and territory, developed by Australia’s leading natural history museums.
The app has been updated to take advantage of the larger screens on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.
We’ve also fixed a number of bugs, including an issue where upgrading the device to iOS 9 caused thumbnails and images to disappear in the app.

Needs more entries

You still have a lot of animals to include even some of the most common, any idea when this might happen?
Could be better
If you could include more animal sounds. Mainly birds. It'd be a 5 out of 5. Please try and include all of these sounds because its frustrating to see some with audio and some without
