I wish I'd taken another photo to show the scale of this spider, as it was enormous!
Might see if my parents got a different photo of it. If so, I'll share.
[EDIT: They didn’t get any photos of it. For reference, its legs easily would’ve spanned an adult’s face...]
We came across it on the outside of the Mossman Gorge Centre building, Mossman Gorge, Qld..
A Black-headed Python that we stopped for on the Endeavour Battlecamp Rd between Cooktown and Laura, Qld..
What I believe to be a Northern Blue Tongued Skink that we spotted crossing the Tanami Road east of Billiluna, WA..
And one of many Sand Goannas I've come across this year. I photographed this one in March, and I believe it was along the Birdsville Developmental Rd, QLD..
I was wondering if anybody has seen any of these they are very rare Greater Mountain Glider very like a giant Sugar Glider.We found this one on the track with a Wedgetail Eagle standing over it we chased the Wedgie away but the Glider died soon after I only know of one place that they still live they make some weird sounds we have also seen Powerful Owls hunting them.
Yes mate I've seen one in East Gippsland a number of years ago, we were out spotlighting for mammals owls etc and was lucky enough to pick one out climbing up a big Euc. I think by memory we saw a Sooty Owl that night as well, their call on a still night out in a dark forest is one you never forget.
