In my impression,Australia is a main country which exports sheep and the releated products,and there are many many sheep in Australia,right?

In JUne, 1838, Mr Hobbs was a superintendent of Dangar's station, which was about 350 miles north of Sydney. He had about 50 natives on the station. He left the station for a few days and, upon returning, found most of the fifty native aborigines to be dead and dismembered.
Some white men were charged with this horredous crime, convicted, and executed: the first instance of white murderers being charged with shooting native people.

Later on, the continent of Australia began to drift away from this great land mass and around the Mesozoic era, dinosaurs roamed the land. After the death of dinosaurs, mammals began to dominate and the first signs of mankind can be traced back with the "First Australians", the Aboriginal people.
Dinosaurs - During the dinosaur era, the Rhoetosaurus was known to live in Australia although no skeleton of a dinosaur has been found.
