Justin Clarke - Exploring and Describing the Wildlife in Australia!

February 10th, 2015 · No Comments

So just another quick update! Its been raining like crazy the past two days and we were supposed to go into town yesterday but the access road got washed out and lost power so we were stuck here. We decided to just play volleyball for six hours in the rain. Today we also learned how to use this program that is an online dichotomous key for plants which was really useful because it is so much faster than using the books.

Some of the animals we’ve seen so far, cockatoo (a lot), honeyeater, some kind of monitor looking lizard, pythons, brush turkeys, cain toads, bandicoots. There are a few others but those are the only ones I can think of off the top of my head. We also saw this really cool beetle that looked like a rhinocerous beetle and there are a ridiculous amount of cicadas here.

Tomorrow we’re going to visit an aboriginal tribe and possibly camp out with them if the weather isn’t very bad. It should be a lot of fun!
