Believe this fella to be a Giant Gippsland Earth worm. I came across this wonder whilst doing an underground today. Luckily this little fella avoided the shovel and was placed back where he came from when I back filled the trench.

A scorpion viewed under Ultraviolet light and normal light conditions! Almost all scorpions glow this way under this type of lighting! It has to do with a substance found in their exosleleton that creates this blue-green glow.
Scientists still aren't sure exactly why they fluresce this way but one theory says it's to be able to recognise other scoprions at night in dim conditions. Studies are still being done!
This guy was found in South Africa and is part of the Scorpionidae family! The other family that is found in the lowveld are Buthidae, which in contrast are the most venemous family. They have small pedipalps with a large stinger located at the end of the tail, whereas scorpionidae have a small stinger amd much larger pedipals (appendages).
But don't be fooled, this guy will still deliver a nasty sting! Make sure to shake out your boots and clothes if you leave them lying around while out in the bush! 🦂

He tried. He tried really hard. Was super cautious around her too. Guess she just didn’t find him handsome enough.

In a very unique event, when dragonflies and damselflies mate, they often create a heart shape. After fighting ferociously for the territory, a male will pick out a female and perform an orchestrated dance. If accepted, the pair will interlock organs, which for the male, is oddly located at the end of its tail/abdomen.
