Australia fun facts

There are more sheep in Australia than people.

Australia has mammals that lay eggs, which of course challenges the definition of "mammal" that we all learned in elementary school. They're called "monotremes," and they include platypuses.

Australia pioneered a manufacturing process for polymer banknotes. Australian bills are plastic, which means they're less susceptible to wear and counterfeiting.
