In a new format this week we have a look at a veterinary case of the week, Jet the American Bulldog who took on a Taipan. We head back 60 million years in the Land Rover Time Machine to have a look at the largest snake ever to have lived, Titanoboa. Our new business website is up at Seadog Veterinary Services. We also went for a sail out to the Great Barrier Reef and Xanthe and Harri give us a report on the wildlife we saw.
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 head back 100 million years to Laramedia and post-mortem a Tyrannosaurus Rex. Harri gets worried about getting home in time for dinner and before 75% of the extant life forms disappeared at the K-T extinction event.
