What an awesome animal!” thanks for sharing your pic with us Ross! #wildlifephotography #australia #australianwildlife #longneckedturtle #turtle #thisiswa #westernaustralia

This pic of a lionfish (Pterois) was captured by underwater photographer Gabriel Guzman @underwater_images. “Lionfish are known for their venomous fin rays, an uncommon feature among marine fish in coral reefs,” says Gabriel. “They have 18 venomous spines and the potency of their venom makes them excellent predators and hazardous to fishermen and divers. In humans, lionfish venom can cause systemic effects such as extreme pain, nausea, vomiting, fever, breathing difficulties, convulsions, dizziness, redness on the affected area, headache, and numbness. Rarely, such stings can cause temporary paralysis of the limbs, heart failure, and even death. Lionfish are not aggressive towards swimmers, however keep a safety distance to avoid any contact. Very beautiful, but very dangerous species.” Thanks for sharing your pic with us Gabriel! #underwaterphotography #underwateraustralia #australia #australiascoast #coast #prettybutdeadly #scorpionfish #lionfish #australianmarinelife

Froggy Friday!!! This pic of a colloquially known pobblebonk frog (Limnodynastes dumerilii) was captured by Ben Revell @bensamuel86. Officially known as the Eastern Banjo Frog, they are a species of burrowing frog and are named for their ‘bonk’ call, which sounds a bit like a banjo string being plucked. There are five different sub-species, all of which are found on the east coast and grow to be about 8cm long. Thanks for sharing your pic with us Ben! #wildlifephotography #frogsofaustralia #australia #australianfrogs #frogging #frogsofinstagram #pobblebonk #froggyfriday
