Australian Super Spider Colours!

Australian Super Spider Colours!

The Australian spiders seem as distinct as the rest of their flora and fauna, with colour the distinguishing mark in this case. Despite their tiny size, these males manage to get noticed by the girls with their fabulous blue scales which amplify reflected light and never fade!

 Desert elephants - nature, nurture, and we love them anyway!

The existence of a water loving species in the middle of a great desert shocked early explorers and has that effect still. Memory, migration and magnificent skills serve the Namibian elephant well, as they probably have for other, long-dead elephant populations in the severest African climates.

How did our ancestors get about. Moving out of as well as inside Africa presented problems that must have given us our current abilities for walking and running with an incredible efficiency only equalled by wolves. I wonder what gave us this potato-like ability to sit on couches and do nothing?

The songs are what makes all of these songbird species stand out, just as we tend to appreciate many other species, including rock stars, who can amuse us with the noises they emit!

When science attempts to discover how natural alcohol sources may affect calorie intake, it is likely that human considerations come into consideration. In this paper, the media can hopefully focus sufficiently on the genetic significance, and not whether monkeys drink or not!

This elusive Australian creature faces an uncertain future in a very limited environment. New systems of research will be able to inform on its conservation and that of many other species, given the hard spadework involved in carrying out the analysis.
