#blog, Science

A little video I cut together showing one of our adult male wētā eating his old moult! When they’ve just moulted, wētā appear a pale/white-ish colour. After a few hours, this male will turn brown again.

I am a wildlife biologist from Alberta, Canada who has also been called a science gardener, a wilderdude, really short, and a rodent discovery technician. Apart from frolicking with animals for science, I have a problem with liking too many other things including writing, photography, and art.
