Another one that I do not know much about. Please tell me if I missed anything.

I repeat that I made the decision to not include any invasive or non-native species, from camels to water buffalo, so those are not going to be added to this list. I did make the decision to include pinnipeds (seals) as I decided that if I was adding saltwater crocodiles, an animal that spends considerable time in the ocean, I might as well add seals as well. Pinnipeds will be added to the other two megafauna quizzes.

Another thing I considered doing is extending the definition of "Australia" to include Indonesia up to the Wallace Line, to capture the entire terrestrial realm of Australasia, but I ended up deciding against it, and going with a more political definition of Australia+the island of New Guinea+New Zealand. The main difference, I believe, is that Komodo Dragons and a couple of deer species are not included in this list. They will instead be included in any "Asia" megafauna lists if I make one

Added the Amethystine Python after finding that it can in fact get this big.
