A-Z listing of invasive animals

These pages contain information on prohibited and restricted pest animals under the Biosecurity Act 2014 and some invasive animals that have been identified as significant or potential pests in Queensland.

Not all invasive animals are listed, as legislation covers all exotic mammals, reptiles and amphibians (except for 32 non-declared animals).

Information about invasive animals that are not included in this list may be available from feral.org.au.
