Coming next: that long-promised post on Australian giant cats. If this stuff is unfamiliar to you, prepare to be surprised. I still can't believe it. After that: the beluwhals, newts (pending fieldwork to be carried out on Wednesday), maybe more feathered dinosaurs.... and rhinogradentians. Spent today watching swimming rats. Only Rattus norvegicus but still cool.

It's very unlikely there's a breeding population, or if there is, it's so inbred it's unlikely to survive recurrent droughts, in my ignorant opinion. But I look forward to your post. As always...

Ah, rhinogradentia. Thus, you are also qualified to post on Petrophaga lorioti.

Hmm, Loriot's stone louse. Not one of my favourite zoological hoaxes I must confess. And besides, Loriot broke the rules by naming said creature after himself. More importantly, it's not a tetrapod, so no coverage from me, sorry..

Thanks for your comment though.

Ah, but Nessiteras rhombopteryx (got to be my favorite binomen of all time) is a tetrapod...
