Venezuelan explorer and naturalist Charles Brewer-Carías has been supplying me with some great photos and taxonomic files on his explorations and the new species he has discovered. I have been updating the page about his work on my website with this new material. The aquatic cave cricket is remarkable. Click on the photo to go to the webpage.
I have just started renovating this website this week. It may take me a while to get it pulled into shape.

Below is an old black and white photo of dad and his mates working on his 500 acre property at Wyong, on the central coast of NSW, using a cross-cut saw back in the days before chainsaws were invented.
Dad collected reports of an unidentified species
of Australian gliding lizard in this region, which his brother saw gliding from tree to tree and some of the other timber cutters were familiar with. They described it as having a flap of skin between its front and back legs, similar to a sugar glider. A specimen was even put on display in a shop window in Wyong for a while.
Richard Muirhead did an interesting article on this unkown lizard species in issue 1 of his Flying Snake magazine

Cared about the way they brought it down
