“The Black Duck Rally for touring motorcycles was first held at Lake Dumbleyung Wagin Western Australia in 1977. By 1985 when this rally film was shot the rally had deteriorated into a frenzy of drinking, burnouts and mindless fun. Not as innocent as the first Black Duck…by 1985 the touring side of things had less emphasis and the behaviour was more bikie-ish. Sleep was impossible. The last one I went to, it was no longer as much fun. Sound like an old phart eh? Murray Barnard – www.ozebook.com

A Tree Full of Water! – Old Brass Tap on Tree used by Wood Cutters & Early Pioneers for Fresh Water

Outback Survival Tip – The Australian Water Tree – these trees are all around Australia, if you ever get lost in the Australian Bush or in the Outback – keep an eye out for the Australian Water Tree, they always have these large bumps or bulbs on them… usually they will carry around 50 litres of fresh water to survive on. They have saved many a life in the Aussie Bush! Video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3AV7KrKj0Jg

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.

At Perth Zoo: You can see Red-tailed Phascogales in the Nocturnal House
