Synopsis by Alice Day
Early explorers to Australia were astounded by the unusual animals, and felt that they were possibly the creations of another god. Even Darwin expressed these sentiments. Nature: Australia - A Separate Creation scrutinizes the marsupials, in particular kangaroos, whose distinctiveness is representative of Australia's strange creatures. The film discusses the development of marsupials from their origins as insect eaters in ancient forests to their achievement as the dominant mammal of the continent. Their species adapted most successfully to the changing environment of Australia.
