    I've just got the buzz that reknown herpetologist John Cann will be talking at this Wednesdays AHS meeting. Apparently he is talking on a 'mixed bag' of topics, ranging from the snakemen of old, to depletion of fresh water turtles in Australia, to herps seen on a visit to Papua, .....

    John is one of the most knowledgeable herpers about so this meeting promises to be excellent

    Also the AHS website is about to be revamped, but here's the link to the site which gives details of location etc

    I told her John was doing a talk and she actually thought about it for a few seconds. I am afraid she is a frequent visitor to the Museum. Been there at night for the torchlight tours and functions in the skeleton gallery so nothing special there anymore.
    I guess I will have to fake going to hospital, the ambulance at 7.30 in Williams St will be me.

    loved it

    I was hooked, John's intensely down to earth for the king of turtles :D he takes some interesting pics too, that poor pig-nose turtle nest!

    look forward to John's next talk, if anyone has Cann's email would be good to find out, thanks :)
