This Friday frilly was also a bit of a ... When frillneck lizards are released, they immediately run up the nearest, tallest object for safety. It's usually a tree. In this case, it was me.

Some of the scent lures we use to attract them are also quite slimy and very smelly. Gotta keep track of where you put them. Nothing like accidentally walking into a tree branch right after dipping it in scent lure.

Pretty terrible day today. Spent most of it getting my car out of a very deep, very stinky puddle of mud mixed with hippo crap. But being greeted by cubs from the Munge clan on my way home made up for it!

When doing fieldwork does anybody else say to themselves that they’re going to make their bag up before sleeping but never do and then have to run around like a blue arsed fly at 5am in the pitch black getting everything sorted? Asking for a friend

Is still a thing? Because I just accidentally cleared an SD card on a camera that I had set in front of a fox den 😭😭😭

Here is a leech that was unsuccessful in its quest to pierce my flesh and consume my blood. Many of its brethren were better at it. Parts of me are still very itchy.

I've got a question mark on the animal attack because I've been threatened by baboons (which I why I kept a giraffe leg bone on my porch- I thought I could use it for self defense like a baseball bat) but never actually attacked.

When you're out surveying for hen harriers and you think you hear a female squeaking and get all excited, and then you realise it's just your squeaky nose when u breathe 🙈 @wildliferanger1

Sooo... we hadn't used this telemetry receiver for a while and it seems an ant colony moved in. They're on the inside of the display screen and they seem pretty comfy 😂

Lucky to be alive: part II. You can't make this s%&* up. Different boat, different trailer, similar story but much scarier scenario. This time I was driving. My advisor checked and regreased the bearings this time. No warning wobble.

My grad school at made it into an article. This is the event that not-so-subtly shoved me towards the quantitative side of ecology - I haven't done field work since.

So today I tripped and fell into sharp dry grass and stabbed my eye. Then I stepped on a mamba, panicked, tripped and fell next to it.... and we didn't even find the baboons.
