Arachnids

Australian arachnids are a diverse group of animals that are native to the continent of Australia and the surrounding islands. Arachnids are invertebrates that belong to the class Arachnida, which includes spiders, scorpions, and mites. There are over 8,000 species of arachnids in Australia, making it one of the most biodiverse countries in the world for this group of animals. Australian arachnids can be found in a wide range of habitats, including forests, deserts, and grasslands. Many of these species are adapted to survive in extreme conditions, such as dry, hot deserts or cold, alpine environments. Australian arachnids play important roles in their ecosystems, serving as both predators and prey and helping to control the populations of other organisms. Despite their ecological importance, many Australian arachnid species are threatened by habitat loss, pollution, and introduced predators.
