Linda and Roger's Southwater Downs - Animals

This page is to contain information about animals that are, or could be, on the property.

It's a place-marker right now, with only a couple of preliminary entries.

We're still developing a set of resources for fauna of the area.

We now have a list of a little over 300 species of fauna that have been sighted within 5km of Southwater Downs, although of course many of them would not be residents of the rainforest.

Native Mammals

We've seen a rat scurry past.

But most are nocturnal.



Native Reptiles

We've seen a couple of small native frogs, incl. an unidentified one (photo below).
