Exciting news out of Australia! Seems like there are still great places left to explore.

Was there in 91, in n. terr. Saw so many herps in the six weeks we where there it's hot I mean makes panama feel like Canada. Did I mention its hot be prepared. Lots of pythons on the coverts on the dirt roads. Venomous in the evenings everyday taipans, and browns mostly. Huge blackhead on a ridgeline didn't even struggle. Hope you enjoy yourself remember its hot!

This is extremely cool, even if I am always slightly disappointed when headline writers indulge in "Lost World" headlines for articles that don't involve live dinosaurs.

That gecko makes up for it, though. It is nice to know that places like this still exist, even though I will probably never see them.

I second that! I am always holding out hopes for dinosaurs. Disappointed every time.
