The island hosts a native marsupial known as the phalanger or grey cuscus, Phalanger orientalis. There are many species of colourful parrots as well as estuarine crocodiles.
In recent times, these crocodiles have been found only on the Weather Coast in the south of the island, but during the Second World War , they were found along the north coast in the vicinity of the airstrip where the fighting was taking place, as evidenced by names such as Alligator Creek.
