These photos are from Macquarie University's Open Day earlier this month:
- Jonno and his Eclectus parrots, Eclectus roratus. Interesting sexual dimorphism, probably related to their polygyny: the female is red, and the male green.
- Adam Stow with an Olive python: Liasis olivaceus. Adam is a conservation geneticist and my supervisor for my 2010 Advanced Biology Internship.
- Prospective students exploring geekery in one of our teaching labs.
- Queuing for fairy floss: Macquarie University Biological Society rots the teeth of prospective students.
- Pteropus poliocephalus, a grey-headed flying fox (fruit bat).
- A mantis eats a cricket.
- A couple more photos of the Olive python, including one with its very close friend Siobhan.
- Tawny Frogmouth: Podargus strigoides, doing its stump impersonation.
- Green tree frog: Litoria caerulea.
- Blue tongue lizard: Tiliqua scincoides scincoides.
- MUBS friends Eleanor and Renee with a St Andrew's Cross Spider, Argiope keyserlingii.
I wish I had come and played with the python. Next time!
Yep, it was a hoot, Davina, you'd have loved it. And the fairy floss was a massive success!
