Widespread but rarely seen wildlife

Australia is a land of many unique animals, some of which are active only during the cooler evening and night-time and so are rarely seen.

These are the after dark animals so widespread yet so little noticed by humans, whether in our backyards, the arid desert, woodlands or rainforest.

Australian Wildlife After Dark brings this hidden fauna into the light.

The after dark fauna includes a surprising diversity of familiar (and some not-so-familiar) species, from cockroaches, moths and spiders through to bandicoots, bats and birds – and then some.

Each example is described in a unique, friendly style by Martyn Robinson, familiar to many Australians through his frequent media appearances on ABC Radio and in Burke’s Backyard magazine, and Bruce Thomson, an internationally renowned wildlife photographer and bat researcher.

The book includes stunning photography and boxes that highlight selected topics, such as the ‘windscreen wiper’ eyelids of geckoes and the strategies used by night-time plants to attract pollinators.

Also included are practical tips on finding nocturnal wildlife, a glossary of scientific terms and a short bibliography.
