Very excited to see my first wild Cassowary. We went to the easiest place to see them, however there were none around, nor had anyone seen any. I found some fresh tracks on the edge of the beach going up through the rainforest. It was a big shock to come around the corner after a 100m of tracking and see it standing there.

I've spent the last few days in the Wet Tropics on a family holiday. I haven't seen a lot of species, however i have seen some iconic species of the region. Including this Scrub Python (Simalia (was Morelia) kinghorni), the longest snake species in Australia. This one had recently finished a decent sized meal. .

A pesky Hare (Lepus europaeus) in the backyard. While not recognised as a major pest, they can cause havoc to revegetation projects as they bite the fresh growth on the tube stock often killing it.

A big Whiptail Wallaby (Macropus parryi) Buck from Prestbury. These fellas get big for a wallaby. One of five species of macropod (kangaroos, wallabies etc.) recorded on Prestbury, a cattle and cropping property on the Darling Downs, Qld.
