    Hairy-nosed Otter

    Hi everybody, Noticed a recent web picture of this species as a road casualty. Burton and Pearson (1987) state, this otter is still widespread and abundant over most of its range. Thought this species was considered nearly extinct up until recently. Has anybody else ever seen them in Borneo?

    Tawny Owl, May UK.

    Hi, an unfortunate road casualty. Wonder if anybody can age and sex this Tawny Owl. Enclose a Tunnicliffe, female owl for comparison. Being a scientific illustrator, he used a silver pendant on a chain to sex his birds prior to making a measured drawing. The two types of chain swing sexed the...

    Orchid id

    Hi, wonder if an expert can confirm this is a late flowering , early purple orchis and not an hybrid. It is difficult for the average person to grow or transplant wild orchids, so how common is it for these orchids to spontaneously sprout from the compost in pots? Also what is the mechanism...
