  • Lucky Snuggles!

    November 2015

    We brought our bird cage in from the veranda last night to put Snuggles, our Cockatiel, to bed and found this snake inside it. We were very surprised to find it was already occupied!

    We thought it might be a Coastal Taipan!

  • Sneaky Assassin

    December 2015

    I found these ants clustered together on my crepe myrtle. What are they and what are they doing? I have tried to identify them but they are not in the “Ants of Brisbane” Queensland Museum Wild Guide. It would be interesting to know, since they look quite spectacular.
