Cyclones have their good points, a very rare and cute animal and a weird shark


Last week two cyclones/hurricanes hit Australia at the same time and they were really big. Whilst that was bad news for some, surfing on the gold coast was amazing as shown in this photo from the Daily Mail.

The Eastern Australian Quoll is a carnivorous marsupial like the Tasmanian devil and has been totally wiped from mainland Australia because of feral cats mainly. It survives in Tasmanian in reasonable numbers. In the picture is a rare black Quoll that I confess I have never heard about.

The other day I spied one of these wobbegong sharks where I snorkel every other day. Never seen one in Clovelly bay before, unfortunately it was quite murky so I didn't get a great look.  Talk to you again in March.   Garry
