Skeletorus! Amazing New Species of Peacock Spider Discovered
It is, of course, just a nickname.  In September 2013, American PhD student Madeline (Maddie) Girard from Berkeley in California and her Sydney friend Eddie Aloise King alighted upon five males of a hitherto unknown species of peacock spider in Wondul Range...

Why Sharks Matter
It’s ironic that movies like Jaws present sharks as ravenous maneaters when the real villain of the piece is… you guessed it.  The human population of the planet eats hundreds of thousands of sharks each year – more specifically their fins.  Often what rema...

Lembeh Straits, A Macro Symphony
The red ‘orang-utan’ crab that you can see in the picture on the left is so tiny that its home is a discarded Coca-Cola bottle top.  The shrimp that you will see after it is barely 4mm tall.  Such is life in Malaysia’s Lembeh Straits and these two creatures...

Dolphins: The World's Best Surfers
You can find the world’s best surfers at Dolphin Cove near Esperance in West Australia but don’t expect to see any surf boards – the clue is in the name. This remarkable footage captured by Jennene and Dave Riggs who have been wildlife filmmakers since 1998...

On 12 August last year I posted about a very strange looking peacock spider with white markings on black background. Well, it has a scientific name now, Maratus sceletus. Here is a bit of its courtship dance. Quite a show if you ask me....and previously unk...

The Ribbon Seal: The Seal with Stripes
What do you get if you cross a zebra with a seal?  There is no sensible answer to that question, of course, but there is a species of seal which lives in the Arctic and subarctic regions of the North Pacific Ocean which could (however unfeasibly) be the pro...
