We added some great new content this week and are excited to show images of a Monte Bello Seahorse. These may be the first underwater photos of the species.
As always, thank you to everyone who contributed and best wishes to all our 'fish friends' for the Festive Season.
Understanding Balinese classical paintings is the aim of the collaborative research project involving the Australian Museum and the University of Sydney. In October 2011 Siobhan Campbell, a PhD student, worked with Dr Stan Florek in Bali.
Well technically speaking, it hasn't been a week. A few of the images below were added to the site before I went on leave, and a few have been added since I returned. Thank you as always to all who have contributed.
Lady Tunakaimanu Feilakepa is renowned and greatly respected for her traditional cultural knowledge in Tonga and across the Pacific. For one week in November 2011 Mrs. Fielakepa visited the museum to share her memories, knowledge and passion for Tongan traditions.
This week we show movies taken at depths of 4 m and 2400 m. The first movie shows what may be the first footage ever taken of a Murray Cod guarding its eggs in a dam. The second movie shows a Threadfin Seasnail swimming down a deep rocky slope. As always there are also some great images. Thank you to everyone who contributed.
