This week’s creatures – 27 August 2020 – Tree Climbing Dragon

It’s been a slower couple of weeks as the weather has been quite cool in the evenings and there is less animal activity. We were lucky to see a barking owl on a tree up Mount Cootha as well as a goanna climbing up a gum tree to say gday to whatever was up the top.

Been a little slower on the hill recently due to a number of other activities going on – but here’s some creatures for the new year!


This week’s creatures – 3 January 2020 – Barking Owls, Bull Rays, My Python!

Butterfly chrysalis on Mount Cootha

We have been very fortunate to have had few fire problems this week (compared to the southern states.)

We have been in the forest and sea each day and have been lucky to see these awesome creatures. With a bit of luck the weather will be kind and let the firies do their work to save the creatures and forests (and their own homes.)

The snake is the Morelia spilota mcdowelli, McDowell’s Python. What a lovely name for such a lovely creature!

This week’s creatures – 30 November 2019 – Bandy Bandy snake! Barking Owl!

It’s been very dry this week, so we have been filling the water pots on the hill. We’ve seen a couple of unusual creatures!
