Hello all, and welcome to my new blog!
Here I shall endeavour to keep you all up-to-date with my fieldwork, research, and other science adventures. And what better way to start than with a lungfish selfie!? This handsome chap, known as Neoceratodus forsteri, lives at the Melbourne Museum and I say hello to him every time I visit.
The Melbourne Museum is my favourite museum in all of Australia and I can’t recommend it highly enough. My favourite galleries are “600 million years”, the “Forest Gallery” and “Wild”, but I suggest you visit yourself and make your own mind up.
Tip: Look out for a primitive ray-finned fish (‘Actinopterygian‘) fossil from the world-famous Gogo Formation with “AC” written on it in black texta – I discovered this specimen during fieldwork back in 2008! (It’s in the cabinet directly opposite the living lungfish).
I welcome your comments, suggestions and feedback – but please keep it respectful.
