It was previous thought that big lizards such as this goanna had a build up of toxins/bad bacteria in the mouths (due to their diet) which would cause tissue swelling, blood clotting and intense pain when bitten by one. Now researchers have found that they actually have a venom gland similar to that of a snake. 🐍 ☠️

The University of Queensland recently discovered that a rabbit cull 20 years ago in Western NSW has caused the wedge tail eagle to start preying on the extremely rare plains-wanderer bird. 
The cull (RHDV) killed 90% of the rabbits in the area. At the time, rabbits made up for around 70% of the eagles diet. 
There are only around 1000 plains-wanderer left so not ideal that the eagles have decided to start eating them. Will be interesting to see if they can come up with a solution 🦃🍽

Kia ora!
Last week, the Lovely fairy-wren project travelled to the Australasian Society for the Study of Animal Behaviour conference (ASSAB) in New Zealand. And what a beautiful place to be, with amazing talks and posters and inspiring people!
See you all next year in Melbourne!

Numbat jump, some more photos of this critically endangered marsupial of which only roughly 1000 remain in the wild. As she leaps off the road towards her bolt hole you can see how her unique banded fur starts to blend into the woodlands terrain (swipe right) #dryandra #numbat #numbats #marsupial #marsupials #marsupialsofinstagram #westaustralia #westernaustralia #justanotherdayinwa #exploreparkswa #myabcphoto #australia #dpaw #waparkswildlife #ozwildlife #wildlifephotography #wildlifeconservation #wildlife #wildlife_shots #naturephotography #zoology #australiananimals #cuteanimals #fauna #wildlifeconservation #ausgeo #natgeo #instanature

Meet the lady behind the scenes. @juliamarr_photography the talented photographer and videographer passionate about wildlife and an avid bird lover.

With her is Poppy the Red-tailed Black-Cockatoo. One of 5 species of black cockatoo. This species is sexually dimorphic, which means the females and males look different. Females like Poppy have the famous yellow-orange stripes in the tail and chest and they are speckled with yellow dots around the head. Males are black with two lateral bright red panels on the tail.

Many cockatoos rely on tree hollow for nesting. A hollow big enough for a cockatoo this size takes 250+ years to develop with the help from moths and bacteria.

Rainbow bee eaters are incredibly colourful and a joy to photograph. I snapped this shot late last year behind my parents place in Mildura. Managed to capture some heat haze too (it got to 45 degrees that day) #birdlifeaustralia #birdsofaustralia #australianbirdlife #wildoz #aussiebirds #australianbirdsofinstagram #australianbirdphotography #photography_globe. #australiangeographic #australiannatives #birdphotographyaustralia #australianbirds #ausgeo #wildlifeofaustralia #anzang #naturephotography #nature #best_bird_shots #best_birds #wildoz #ozwild #ozwildlife #abcmyphoto #wildlifeperfection
