Look who we found raising her growing family in the back of the car! 🕷️ 🕷️  This beautiful Huntsman spider has at least 50 babies who have shed their exo-skeleton and started to grow. Survival rate is roughly 10% making their start to life almost as precarious as our local Flatback turtles.

Not so good when you are driving and they just pop up next to you, or above you or on your lap! Lol however they are pretty amazing and some spiders webs are works of art and pure joy in sunlight with dew drops on them or in moonlight!

Congratulations to these talented #girlsinSTEM for their excellent invention to help protect glossy black-cockatoos, presented at this week’s Wonder of Science, Student Conference!  After attending Camp Koala at QTFN’s Aroona Station, these promising conservation scientists designed coloured rings to mark food and habitat trees of the glossy black-cockatoo and prevent them being cut down.  We loved celebrating #nationalscienceweek at Kimberley Park State School and cant wait to see the finalists at the Wonder of Science, State Conference in November.
