The world’s biggest grassland animal, the griggland butterfly, is now living in Australia
Griggland butterflies live in Australia’s grasslands.

A recent study in the journal Biological Conservation says the griggs have taken over a huge chunk of Australia’s remaining land.
The grigglands are a diverse range of grasslands in Australia.

Griggland beetles are big, with an average length of 7.8 centimetres (2.8 inches).
They have been known to weigh up to 200 kilograms (460 pounds), according to the study.
The research team recorded the grigs movements, including the size of their wings, and measured the amount of water that they could carry on their bodies.
They discovered the insects were using the water to make a nest, and to gather food.
It’s one of the most unusual findings in Australia, because they live in such a wide range of habitats.

Griggs are an important pollinator, and are a key component of the ecosystem in many parts of Australia.
And the research team says the insects have managed to take over the majority of the grassland.
“Grigg-nimshina, which has been a hotspot for griggs, is undergoing significant habitat change due to the rapid increase in humans,” Dr. Mark Karras, a biologist from the Griffith University, said.
“Griggs can be found in nearly every Australian landscape, and we are seeing them in unprecedented numbers, so their impact on the landscape and the ecosystem is profound.
We are concerned that this will result in significant loss of habitat for other insects and for other species.”
It is unknown whether the insects are already thriving in the Australian grasslands, or if they will just get bigger.
A new study found there are about 1,500 species of grigg in Australia and that there are approximately 100,000 grigg.
There is one species that has been found in the eastern parts of Victoria, but they have never been reported in the western part of the country.
Dr. Karrs told news.com.au that they found a single species of Grigg in the northern parts of New South Wales, but there is no evidence of the grig in the southern part of Australia, which is home to the majority.
“In the north we found one species, but it was only about 200 kilometres away, and that species is now thought to have moved to the west coast,” Dr Karr.
But it’s not just the grimmies who are going extinct.
A study from last year showed the Grigs numbers in Australia were declining, and the study said there was also an increase in the number of griggs on the Australian mainland.
More species are dying than ever, and many scientists are worried about what will happen to the world’s largest grassland butterfly.
“They are important pollinators, but the extent to which they will survive the climate change is very uncertain,” Dr Michael J. Wigley, from the University of Tasmania, said in a statement.
So what’s the solution?
It would seem that if the species can be managed, they could make a comeback in the griggle world.
That’s because they can fly, and they have the ability to eat a variety of plants.
However, scientists are concerned about the effect this will have on the native species.
“These grigg are a very important pollination species, and if the grasslands are not protected they will likely disappear from Australian ecosystems,” Dr Wigly said.
With more than 300 species of insects on the continent, there are still a lot of unknowns.
