  • Australian Shingleback Lizards Shingle-back lizards are found in the southern half of Australia, except for eastern and south-eastern coastal areas. It inhabits coastal heaths, dry sclerophyll forests, mallee scrub and Spinifex-dominated sandy deserts. They are diurnal and shelter under fallen timber, leaf litter, and grasses when not active. Shingle-back lizards are primarily herbivorous living on a diet of flowers, berries and succulent leaves, however they will opportunistically consume insects and carrion. Shingle-back lizards are highly monogamous, seeking out the same partner year after year. When breeding begins in spring, the male will seek out the female by the scent trails she leaves behind. Although the female can have one to four live young, which are rather large in comparison to mum (combined weight around 1/3 of her body weight), on average she will give birth to only two. Medium sized lizard with a short thick tail that is used for storing fat. The tail resembles the shape of the head and works to confuse predators. The scales are dark and rough, resembling the appearance of the pine cone on top however, the under belly is creamy coloured and smooth. It has short legs and its tongue is bright blue.

  • An Australian King-Parrot - Eating Broad Beans in my Backyard Vegetable Garden Watch an Australian King Parrot eating broad beans in my backyard garden. See a close up of this quiet bird, who seems to enjoy eating broad beans. I had noticed over the last week that some of my broad beans had been eaten and I was not sure who was eating them. Then yesterday morning I spotted this King-Parrot, so I had to get out my video camera and capture the moment!! The following details come from the birdsinbackyard dot net website:- Description Male Australian King-Parrots are the only Australian parrots with a completely red head. Females are similar to males except that they have a completely green head and breast. Both ***es have a red belly and a green back, with green wings and a long green tail. King parrots are normally encountered in pairs or family groups. Similar species The adult Crimson Rosella, Platycercus elegans, is similar to the male Australian King-Parrot, but differs by having blue cheeks, shoulders, and tail, a whitish, rather than red, bill and a dark eye. Immature Crimson Rosellas also differ from female and immature King-Parrots by having blue cheeks, a whitish bill and a more yellow-green rather than dark green colouring. Where does it live? Distribution King-Parrots are found along the east coast and ranges of Australia, ranging from Cooktown in Queensland through to Port Campbell in Victoria. Habitat King-Parrots are usually found in rainforests or wet sclerophyll forests Seasonal movements Largely sedentary. What does it do? Feeding The ...
  • Mediterranean landscape in California http A Mediterranean climate resembles the climate of the lands in the Mediterranean Basin, which includes most of the area with this climate type worldwide. Beyond areas surrounding the Mediterranean Sea, this climatic type prevails in much of southern California, in parts of Western and South Australia, in southwestern South Africa, and in parts of central Chile. The climate is characterized by warm to hot, dry summers and cool, wet winters. Mediterranean climate zones are associated with the five large subtropical high pressure cells of the oceans, the Azores High, South Atlantic High, North Pacific High, South Pacific High, and Indian Ocean High. These high pressure cells shift polarward in the summer and equatorward in the winter, playing a major role in the formation of the world's tropical deserts and the zones of Mediterranean climate polarward of the deserts. For example, the Azores High is associated with the Sahara Desert and the Mediterranean Basin's climate. The South Atlantic High is similarly associated with the Namib Desert and the Mediterranean climate of the western part of South Africa. The North Pacific High is related to the Sonoran Desert and California's climate. The Mediterranean forests, woodlands, and scrub biome is closely associated with Mediterranean climate zones. Particularly distinctive of the climate are sclerophyll shrublands, called maquis in the Mediterranean Basin and chaparral in California. My ...
  • emoe - emu - dromaius novaehollandiae The Emu is Australia's tallest native bird, reaching 1.6-1.9m when standing erect. The Emu is found only in Australia. It lives throughout most of the continent, ranging from coastal regions to high in the Snowy Mountains. The main habitats are sclerophyll forest and savanna woodland. Emus were once found in Tasmania, but were exterminated soon after Europeans arrived. Emus eat fruits, seeds, growing shoots of plants, insects, other small animals, and animal droppings. They move within their range according to climatic conditions. If sufficient food and water are present, birds will reside in one area. Visit for highres version or broadcast video footage.

  • Summoning - Habbanan Beneath The Stars I'm a big fan of the Austrian band Summoning, whose lyrics draw inspiration from the writings of JRR Tolkien. I had the idea of gathering the best pictures i could find about the place i live, Madeira Island, and make a video using Summoning's music because the scenery fits perfectly the music. This island is special because it is where there are some of the oldest forests in the world. The laurisilva forests of Macaronesia are relicts of a vegetation type which originally covered much of the Mediterranean Basin when the climate of the region was more humid. With the drying of the Mediterranean Basin during the Pliocene, the laurel forests gradually retreated, replaced by more drought-tolerant sclerophyll plant communities. Most of the last remaining laurisilva forests around the Mediterranean are believed to have disappeared approximately 10000 years ago at the end of the Pleistocene, when the Mediterranean basin became warmer and drier, although some remnants of the laurel forest flora still persist in the mountains of southern Spain, north-center of Portugal and northern Morocco, and two constituent species (Laurus nobilis and Ilex aquifolium) remain widespread. The location of the Macaronesian Islands in the North Atlantic Ocean moderated these climatic fluctuations, and maintained the relatively humid and mild climate which has allowed these forests to persist to the present day. more information: www.madeira- Summoning homepage: www ...
