In New South Wales, The Spiders Are Huge.

New South Wales Spider

A 1.5m long goanna gave a man a fright when it scaled the outside of his home. Eric Holland had been working in his shed in Thurgoona, New South Wales, when he saw the unexpected visitor darting across his property. Holland, who managed to snap a picture of the goanna, said: “I saw movement as I came out of the shed and I had a look and thought, bloody hell what is this thing? When I recovered from the shock I went inside and got a camera.” Goannas are often found in eastern Australia but generally live in the bush. They are typically wary of humans but are considered potentially dangerous on account of their bite. This one, thought to be a lace monitor goanna, hasn’t been spotted since it scampered away. A spokesman for the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage said the lace monitor could grow up to two metres in length and weigh up to 20kg.

Footprint

Tuesday, 3 July 2012

Creatures big and small had their footprints dipped in ink and imprinted on paper at the Taronga Zoo in Sydney, Australia, as part of a new elephant conservation project in Thailand’s Kui Buri National Park on June 26, 2012. Animal handlers at the Taronga and Western Plains Zoo plan on collecting the footprints of 4,000 animals when all is said and done.
