    The fauna of Australia consists of a huge variety of animals; some 83% of mammals, 89% of reptiles, 90% of fish and insects and 93% of amphibians that inhabit the continent are endemic to Australia. This high level of endemism can be attributed to the continent's long geographic isolation, tectonic stability, and the effects of an unusual pattern of climate change on the soil . species present on the nearest islands of Tonga, Fiji, Samoa, and Uvea, we con­ cluded that the differences between Pteropus samoensis and P. nawaiensis are in­ significant and that the latter is a subspecies ofP. samoensis. The present distribution, numbers, roosting and feeding habits, and present status ofPteropus tonganus on Niue Island.

For most species, emergence from the final nymphal skin occurs during the first few hours after dark; the laborious process can last an hour or more.
