This fauna survey was a lot more comfortable to do, as the heat and humidity was a lot lower than the one in Feburary this year.
One reptile than you can catch on Koolan any time of the year is the common Rock Skink (Ctenotus inornatus).
A more uncommon one is the Moon or Orange-naped Snake (Furina ornata), which we didn't catch at all in Feburary.
A very dark form of legless lizard (Delma borea) is found on the island.
One of the geckos found in the north that we caught on this survey was Gehyra australis.
The minesite environmental crew on Koolan are a great bunch of people, that are always a great help with the trapping. Here Shona, one of the environmental students, is on the lookout for more animals (or is it a cold beer at the wet mess?).
Finally, no survey on Koolan is complete without a endemic snail survey. This is the typical habitat for a lot of the snail species found on the island, rocks with thick leaf litter under trees.
