The Wolf Spider leaving its burrow in @outbackqueensland to begin the night’s wander🕷. Most Wolf Spiders are wanderers however some species build burrows, either open or with trapdoors. Others temporarily form retreats in vegetation🌳. They are robust and agile hunters using their strong legs to grab their prey. 🦗🐛
Meet Flo. She’s a wallaby being hand-reared by the team at @featherdalewildlifepark after being rejected by her mum. We were so lucky to meet her and a whole host of other Aussie icons today during a special tour of the park. I loved hearing their stores and getting an insight into what goes on behind-the-scenes at #Featherdale in terms of animal rescue, breeding and conservation programs. Check out the animals we met in my Insta stories or on the blog (link in profile). #aussieicons#featherdalewildlifepark#featherdalewildlife#wallaby#sydneykids#sydneywithkids
How cool is this bug! We think it's a Hibiscus Harlequin from looking at our field guides.
We just spent the whole morning at a local park. The kids spent about 5 minutes on the play equipment and the rest of the time climbing rocks, looking for bugs, collecting nature treasures and doing imaginative play with new friends. Kids really don't need playgrounds when they have nature to explore!
The Southern Spotted Velvet Gecko 🦎 searching for insects during the night🐞🐜. They have an incredible ability to leap up and pluck insects from the air within close proximity. This guy was eyeing off some nearby moths for dinner 🦋🦋. They are abundant in bushland with upland timbered and rocky habitats in mid-eastern #queensland and north-eastern #newsouthwales 🌳. 🎼@ottomusicau: ‘Spooky’
