David Kirshner on “The heath monitor, Varanus rosenbergi”

  • 280 Pitt Street
Event Expired


David Kirshner originally came to Australia from Canada to do research on crocodiles but is probably better known to AHS members for his talks on the lace monitors he keeps and breeds at home.

This months’ talk is a departure from both crocodiles and lace monitors, for David is going to talk about Sydney’s ‘other’ monitor, the smaller, less well known heath monitor, Varanus rosenbergi. Over the past nine years David has devoted a fair bit of his spare time observing the nesting behaviours of wild heath monitors and in this talk he will be explaining how and why he ended up spending so much time studying heath monitors as well as sharing what he has seen, photographed and recorded on video.

Please join us on Wednesday, October 25, at 7:30 PM for the talk!
