Croc Caves of Ankarana

We traveled over 2 KM, in absolute dark, through an underground river full of bats, eels and blind fish to find one of the rarest Crocs in the world.

Monarch Butterfly

Weighing no more than a paperclip, this unbelievable insect makes a 4500 km journey that absolutely boggles the mind.

Red Roughed Lemur

They are one of the rarest lemurs in the world. And to see one, you have to go to a small Island off the coast of Madagascar. Then maybe... just maybe - you'll see one!

Adélie

The cutest penguin of them all! Imagine standing amongst a hundred thousand birds in one of the most remote places on the planet. This is bucket list stuff.

The Hippo Whisperer

Jane Goodall and her son, Grub, are trying to save a hippo sanctuary in Southern Tanzania. We went to tell their incredible story and meet the man they call “The Hippo Whisperer!”

African Painted Wolves!
Scientists call it reverse peristalsis, or simply put, throwing up. African painted wolves bring dinner home in their belly, and then they serve it up, in bite-sized pre-warmed chunks, with this amazing process of regurgitation. The behaviour is stimulated by the pups biting the lower lips and face of the adults who are preparing to serve it up hot. It’s a ready-to-eat, partially digested and seasoned buffet for the pups.

Lurking in the ocean deep, the Goblin shark looks like a creature from an 'alien' movie! This species certainly isn't the world's fastest shark, nor the biggest, but the goblin shark does come with one of the most unique ways of feeding on the planet. When hunting, it thrusts its jaw forward in what is called 'slingshot feeding'. A goblin shark's jaws are attached to elastic ligaments, and when prey comes within striking distance, the jaw protrudes, allowing the shark to catapult its whole mouth forward at a distance equal to 9% of its total body length. If a human mouth was capable of doing this, you could bite into a piece of food dangling 7 inches in front of your nose. Amazing!

15 or so years ago, I lived in a place with cheap kitchen cabinets that had very ugly 70s plastic doors on them. I couldn't afford new doors, so I cut up 2 Christopher Marley calendars. Then I mounted each image on matboard, covered them with cold laminate, so they would be washable, and fastened them to the doors. I loved the way they looked.

Amazing colours ❤
