I am often asked about what the Museum's live animals are fed. People are often curious about what we feed our Python, and when I inform them that he recieves an adult rat every two to four weeks the next question is; "do you feed him a live rat?" the answer can require some explaination.
Most Acropora species at Lizard Island spawned on the night of 25 November this year, the third night after the full moon. On the following night, many goniasterid and favid corals spawned, and on the night after that it was the turn of Porites corals.
When a natural disaster strikes children, little children under the age of five are most at risk. Children in developing countries and those at war already have a difficult time and when a natural disaster occurs it just adds to their problems.

Most people would know that we are overfishing our oceans and how this is having a huge affect on the oceans and the wildlife that live there. When you buy your seafood do you have the knowledge to make informed choices?

On a street post in Darlinghurst a young female Titan Stick Insect, measuring 21cm in total, was found and taken to the Australian Museum. The insect must have become separated from its gumtree, unable to fly it wandered to the nearest structure and climbed to the top. This is a tail I have heard more than a few times this Spring.
