This week we set about dissecting a Mouse Spider. We have a general look at Tarantulas aka Mygalomorph spiders. We fire up the time machine for a quick look at spider evolution in the Triassic. Harri enjoys the extra oxygen available but decides that the extra size that it gave insects and arachnids might be a worry.
This week we are firing up the time machine and heading back 150 million years to what is now North Africa. Harri has her heart set on riding a Spinosaurus. It has been busy week at SeaDog Vet Services dealing with a crocodile attack and Twit the barking owl, and Xanthe has been making a start on her PADI open water dive ticket. Somehow we manage to morph this into a discussion of Sauropod anatomy.
Our first podcast from Cooktown. This week we bring you an interview with Dr Rick Braley of http://aquasearch.net.au when we visited his aquarium on Magnetic Island. Dr Braley is a world renowned expert on Giant Clams. We discuss these massive bivalves, their biology and their future. http://www.djulinmarine.com/pages/about%20us.htm
