- Apparently a common misspelling of "Gymnothorax thyrsoideus". http://marinespecies.org/aphia.php?p=taxdetails&id=399889 I just corrected the same typo in all my photos too :(
- I was thinking of the animal they describe as a "nudibranch" which is actually a flatworm (Pseudobiceros bedfordi)! This is a pet hate of at least one well-known Australian naturalist...
- Video of the Spiny Gurnard "walking" on its "legs"... Bare Island, Botany Bay, 28/2/2009.
- Be sure to check out episode 8 "Creatures of the Deep" too -- it features Australian giant cuttles! I had a sneak preview on a recent flight. See if you can spot the mistake! (Hint: you may need to know a teeny bit about Opisthobranchs!)
- I've known for years this day would come! Welcome to the world of celebrity, Mr Blobby!
- When uploading media, are there guidelines for dimensions, file sizes, file formats, video codecs, and so on? Are media without embedded watermarks preferred? Thanks
Hi guys, I know you are all working flat out porting the old site, something that would be totally awesome would be a mini "taxonomy" bar at the top of each fish page showing the fish's place in the taxonomic hierarchy. Each taxon being a clickable link that takes you to a list of its child taxa or species. This is sometimes called a "breadcrumb trail" in web design lingo. For example across the top of the Eastern Blue Groper page would be something like:
"Actinopterygii -> Perciformes -> Labridae -> Achoerodus -> A. viridis".
Clicking "Labridae" for example would bring up a list of all wrasses that have pages. Big ask I know
