Mystery Tanami Egg is Not of the Night Parrot

Mystery egg of the Night Parrot in Tanami Desert?
A mystery egg was found in the Tanami Desert of northern Australia 30 years ago. Many latched on to this specimen as being from the Night Parrot, thought to be extinct. DNA from the egg was compared to DNA of Night Parrot specimens in the Queensland Museum. The Brown Quail was found to be the "mother" of the Tanami egg.
Night Parrot
All hope was not lost, however. In 2013 the Night Parrot was found to be still with us. A small population was discovered living in Western Australia, far away from Queensland. Much has been leaned about the environmental requirements for the rare bird's survival.

This shows that human hope is very strong. We will attribute links to things that are very weak. The egg does have unusual characteristics: it is sand white, not like the quail egg which is pale but speckled brown. It is pointed at one end though, typical of the quail.

Weird Fanged Fish Found in Australia

Researchers on an Australian exploration ship got more than they bargained for when they searched an area near Sydney in New South Wales. They were examining lobster larvae but discovered something really snappy. On the sea floor near ancient volcanoes they found an odd fanged fish.
Snaggletooth dragonfish genus Astronesthes
The tiny fish a bit larger than your thumbnail is as black as coal. While the fish has probably already been named in the snaggletooth dragonfish genus (Astronesthes) these fish have rarely been seen. There are ten fish species of this type located in the region. Further analysis will be need to find out if it is a new species.

The larvae of common fish such as flatfish, gurnard, kingie and Dolphin fish were also seen there. This surprised scientists who had previously thought that they were washed into the path of predators by the current. It seems the dragon fish came up from the depths to join them.

Beached Beaked Whale in Australia

Many animals have not been seen for a long time. Indeed, it is not known whether they have become extinct. Some, of course, live in places not usually visited by humans. Recently a beaked whale was washed up on a beach Australia. It is rare and lives deep in the sea.

The actual species cannot be verified by manual examination of the body, Part of the body will be sent to the Australian Science Museum in Sydney for DNA tests and X-ray scans to determine the correct species.

Not much is known about beaked whales because they live so far down in the sea. Only stranded and beached specimens have been found. They do come to the surface to breath but do not linger there for very long.

Many scientists have never seen a live beaked whale. A beaching of this kind is very rare indeed. Parts of the body will be thoroughly examined to shed more light on how the mammal lives.  We will never know everything about fellow animals.  The more we know the better.
