We're here!

Well, we made it to north Queensland and it was a hectic move! Amidst the emotion of finishing with Melbourne Museum after almost 12 years, and keeping Minibeast Wildlife running as per normal in Victoria we managed to get ourselves and our animal collection up here. The weather has been much wetter than usual at this time of year, so in our first two weeks have seen 6 species of frogs on or adjacent to our property. So far only one snake, a 2.5 metre Scrub Python. The invetebrate life seems to be slowly gearing up as we move into spring. Each night we're seeing just a little more out and's a taste of what we've seen so far.
