Dysentery was the most common disease on the First Fleet, caused by the unsanitary conditions. Fevers were common. Cholera and typhoid were also diseases experienced by many, …and there was also some venereal disease, as the soldiers quite happily took the women convicts for their own use whenever they wanted.
The First Fleet brought a variety of items needed to start a newsettlement, such as seed, farm implements, and farm animals.Unfortunately, a large portion of the seed brought …from Englandwent mouldy or was eaten by rats on the long voyage, or simplycouldn't grow in the hot, humid Australian climate. Furthermore,the English implements was no match for the rough, hard Australianground, and many broke. At Rio de Janeiro and the Cape of Good Hope, more seeds and cropswere bought, including coffee, cocoa, cotton, bananas, oranges,lemons, guavas, tamarinds and prickly pear. There were at least 500 farm animals taken on the fleet, includingstock animals such as sheep, cattle, horses and pigs. There wasplenty of poultry, and even rabbits (though these are not the onesresponsible for the rabbit plagues in Australia today). there weredogs and cats, and of course, rats which stowed away on the ships. The convicts were only allowed to bring what they wore, but themarines and their families brought a variety of personalpossessions.

It wasn't. Despite Captain Arthur Phillip's to try and keep theconvicts as healthy as possible, typhoid, cholera and dysenterywere prevalent among the convicts. Conditions bel…ow decks wereunsanitary as bad weather prevented the convicts from going up ondeck most of the time.
It is not actually known why rabbits came with the First Fleet, butfor whatever reason, they did not breed prolifically or cause anyproblems for the first few years of the col…ony's settlement. Thereis absence of any evidence that they were either eaten or huntedfor sport in the Sydney area, so it is uncertain why rabbits wereinitially introduced. They were known to be popular as pets in theSydney area in the 1840s, but this is long A&R the First Fleet. This is completely different from the introduction of rabbitslater, in the 1850s, when they were brought over specifically forthe purpose of hunting.
