Have you also learned that secret from the river; that there is no such thing as time?” That the river is everywhere at the same time, at the source and at the mouth, at the waterfall, at the ferry, at the current, in the ocean and in the mountains, everywhere and that the present only exists for it, not the shadow of the past nor the shadow of the future.
– Hermann Hesse, Siddhartha

VIDEO With a wingspan of up to 2.74m, the Wedge-Tailed Eagle is the largest raptor in Australia. A lanky bird, it hunts by high soaring flight, circling up on thermal air currents for hundreds of meters and sailing out on upswept wings, its tail fanned and diamond-shaped. Watch video on youtube

VIDEO Echidnas, or spiny ant eaters as they are sometimes known, are monotremes (mammals that lay eggs). They have many features which are reptilian in nature such as egg laying, legs that extend outward then downward, and a lower body temperature (about 31-32 C), than other mammals. Surprisingly, echidnas are good swimmers, paddling about with only the snout and a few spines showing. Watch video on youtube
