Awesome News! Western Australian Red Tail Phascogale Breeding Box Success!

Scientific name: Phascogale calura
Conservation Status: Near Threatened
Body length: 11-15 cm
Weight: 35-70 g
Gestation: About 30 days
Number of young: 6-15

Distribution: Wheatbelt region in Western Australia
Habitat: The Red-tailed Phascogale is restricted to isolated patches of forest that receive 300-600 mm of annual rainfall

Description: The Red-tailed Phascogale’s fur is mostly ash-brown, which fades to white under the belly. The tail is a deep rust colour that extends to a hairy black brush at the end. At 13–14 cm, it is almost as long as the phascogale’s body.

Diet: Red-tailed Phascogales are carnivores. They eat insects, small mammals and birds. They receive enough water through their food and therefore rarely have to drink water.

In the wild: For a three-week period in July, males embark on an exhausting and fatal frenzy of mating. They travel large distances to mate with as many females as possible. During this flurry of mating activity, the males’ immune system fails before they reach 12 months of age and they succumb to stress-related illnesses and die. Females usually survive the mating season to breed a second or third time.

Threats: Habitat destruction and introduced predators such as cats and foxes are the greatest threats to the Red-tailed Phascogale.

Finally Getting Out and About and Doing Some Mushroom Hunting Approx 8 Species and One Weird Half Mushroom / Fig Thingy! – MAYBE MAGIC ONES!

I really need to learn all of the Flora, Fungi and Fauna of my hometown in Dumbleyung, Western Australia… it is extremely important to me, and photography is one of my biggest passions, along with all my other amazing adventures, so soon when I get my new camera I can get back into doing some serious videos, youtubing, do videos on all of my photography and much more.

And Yes I am extremely curious about Magic Mushrooms… what’s wrong with that? Healing Plant Medicine Guys!

And What in the Hell is that strange, weird Half Mushroom / Fig Thingy!?

Update:

The Fig Fruit type Fungi, Puffball, Mushroom, Toad-stall thingy is a Pisolithus Species of somekind,

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pisolithus

I just found out… When fully mature, the fruiting bodies of Pisolithus species … likely this one Pisolthus tinctorius or  Pisolithus hypogaeus produce copious amounts of powdery spores. Before that, much of the fruiting body will have a tarry consistency and at that stage it was used on wounds. It was also eaten when still very young, but most likely as an emergency food. In various published accounts you will see the name Pisolthus tinctorius used. This overseas name has been used almost automatically (and probably incorrectly) for Australian Pisolithus specimens Australian Aboriginal use of fungi An excellent source of information about this topic is the chapter by Arpad Kalotas in Fungi of Australia, Volume 1B and virtually all the material in this section is taken from there. For thousands of years Aboriginal fungal lore and knowledge has been passed orally from generation to generation. The written record began in the 19th century, when various European settlers and explorers recorded Aboriginal uses of and beliefs about fungi. Unfortunately, in most cases there is not enough detail to allow identification of the species involved. It also pays to use early European accounts carefully, for in any cross-cultural contact there is potential for misunderstanding and therefore mis-reporting. It should be no surprise to learn that the early Europeans recorded varied attitudes to fungi amongst the different Aboriginal people of Australia. After all, if you look at the different cultures across the same size area in Europe you’d find the same varied attitudes to fungi. In 1841 the explorer George Grey published an account of his travels in Western Australia and reported that he’d seen seven species of fungi eaten by the Aborigines. He commented that “The different kinds of fungus are very good. In certain seasons of the year they are abundant, and the natives eat them greedily”. The Tasmanian George Robinson wrote: “Various are the fungus which the natives eat, and all are known to them by different qualities which they possess, and all are known by different names”. Kalotas notes a Central Australian belief, as recorded by the anthropologists B Spencer and FJ Gillen at the beginning of the 20th century: “Falling stars appear to be associated with the idea of evil magic in many tribes. The Arunta believe that mushrooms and toadstools are fallen stars, and look upon them as being endowed with arungquiltha (evil magic) and therefore will not eat them.” However, Kalotas comments that this cannot apply to all fungi, for a number are eaten by the central Australian people. click to enlarge click to enlarge Omphalotus nidiformis, left, and luminescent in the dark, above. James Drummond, an early settler and plant collector in Western Australia talked of a large luminous mushroom (most likely Omphalotus nidiformis) and reported that several Aboriginal people, when they saw it “…cried out ‘Chinga!’ their name for a spirit, and seemed much afraid of it”. Interestingly, several of the early European accounts report that Aborigines did not eat species of Agaricus – the genus which includes the Common Field Mushroom. While a number of people in the 20th century have documented Aboriginal fungal use, it is worth making special mention of John Cleland . He had broad scientific interests, including anthropology, was a very knowledgeable mycologist and so contributed significantly to knowledge of fungal use. There is still much scope for ethnomycological fieldwork in Australia. Very few useful fungi have been recorded and it is possible that there is more knowledge still in peoples’ heads. Geographically, there are large blank areas with no recorded uses, but away from the desert areas much native knowledge has probably been lost due to more concentrated European settlement and agriculture. But, who knows what can be found from papers and diaries still sitting in libraries or archives. It would also pay to check the published statements in some of the early European writings and to confirm species identifications. For the moment, here are the uses of the fungi reported in the chapter by Kalotas.

Garrett AT Gold Meteorite Detecting – New Meteorite Find and My Other Older Meteorites Finds

Australia’s Bullshit Meteorite Laws – No Finders Keepers Allowed… is total bullshit, these laws only promote the selling of Meteorites on the Black Market and also the illegal smuggling of Australian Found Meteorites overseas.

The WA Museum has 50,000 Meteorites archived away for know one to see and appreciate, I guarantee you that the Museum would onsell these for profit, meteorites found by people who have handed them in to the government.

There is no way in the world I would ever hand in my meteorites to the government, because they would profit from it, onsell fragments for research and so forth.

New Lake Eyre Meteorite Found Probably Faked, Planted and Put There by Scientists

I have found approximately 8 Meteorites in my area, and the government aint gonna touch them.

As I say, just one of my meteorites could help me in my future.

The Western Australian Government offers no reward or incentive to people who find meteorites, it is total bullshit and it really disgusts me that I am not allowed to sell my Meteorites that I have found.

The West Australian Museum Meteorite Collection

Are meteorites protected?
Federal laws protect meteorites found in Australia and it is an offence to export one without a permit. In Western Australia and South Australia legislation means that meteorites are the property of the Government and must be lodged with an appropriate Museum. In other States, the finder is able to keep a meteorite.

Meteorites found in Western Australia are held under a statutory obligation laid down in Section 45 of the Museum Act (1969 as amended in 1973), whereby meteorites from Western Australia belong to the State, and ownership is vested in the Trustees of the Western Australian Museum.

Devils Dust Movie Trailer – The Killer James Hardie Asbestos Company & Bernie Banton

Devil’s Dust is a two-part Australian television docu-drama mini-series on the ABC which first screened in 2012. Based on journalist Matt Peacock’s 2009 book Killer Company, Devil’s Dust was researched and developed by producer Stephen Corvini for over two years prior to the series’ production. Through the factual case of Bernie Banton, it recounts the tragedy of many Australian workers and their families afflicted with asbestosis and mesothelioma in the twentieth-century asbestos mining and processing industries. Though the extreme health risks of exposure to asbestos dust had been documented for many years, manufacturer James Hardie persisted in large-scale use of the material, aided by inadequate regulation by state health agencies.

BEFORE he died an early death at 61 in 2007, Australia knew Bernie Banton as the smiling man with asbestosis who carried an oxygen bottle wherever he went.

We didn’t know all that much about him at first, just that he was up against the polished legal might and political clout of building materials manufacturer James Hardie. I still remember the company’s name stamped on sheets of “fibro” in the local hardware yard. I had no idea the lives of thousands of Australians might have been jeopardised by asbestos in materials such as this. Or that underfelt made from shredded asbestos bags under old carpet leaked pain.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Devil%27s_Dust

Banton seemed an ordinary bloke, a former factory worker, who soon became the widely recognised face of the legal and political campaign to achieve compensation for the many sufferers of asbestos-related diseases. But, as this two-part series reveals, there was more to Banton than many of us realised as we watched the emerging folk hero on TV waging his seemingly losing battle against the corporate figureheads of the James Hardie company.

Bernard Douglas (Bernie) Banton AM (13 October 1946 – 27 November 2007) was an Australian social justice campaigner. He was the widely-recognised face of the legal and political campaign to achieve compensation for the many sufferers of asbestos-related conditions, which they contracted after either working for the company James Hardie or being exposed to James Hardie Industries’ products.

Bernie himself suffered from asbestosis, Asbestos-Related Pleural Disease (ARPD) and then finally peritoneal mesothelioma. These conditions required him to carry an oxygen tank wherever he went. The 2009 book Killer Company details Banton’s fight against James Hardie.
