Nature’s Strangest Creatures (film) Featurette; released on March 19, 1959. Produced by Ben Sharpsteen. Filmed in Australia by Alfred and Elma Milotte. Since Australia broke from the Asiatic mainland many eons ago, it has developed a unique and exotic population of wildlife, free from outside influences. Such creatures as the giant bat, the duck-billed platypus, kangaroos, wallabies, and the bush-tailed possum pursue their business of survival in this isolated land where nature has preserved a sanctuary for the strangest of its creatures. 16 min.
