I was sent this amazing article about one of my favourite animals, the komodo dragon - due to my current research into reptile musculoskeletal diseases. Researchers found that as komodos age they develop subcutaneous Osteoderms, which form a natural 'chainmail' under the skin. Researchers have concluded that the development of these tiny bones in adulthood, must be to protect them from conspecifics (other dragons), as they are arboreal (tree-dwelling) as juveniles and have no natural predator when mature.  AMAZING!

As it's #throwbackthursday, here's one from this summer, when I was privileged to be invited to speak at the #biaza Terrestrial Invertebrate Working Group conference held at @zslwhipsnadezoo about my work training bugs in film! 🐜🕷️🦗🐞🐝🐛🦋🐌 Throughout my zoo career I'd attended several of these events and it was wonderful to catch up with old friends and colleagues and make new ones too! Some very interesting chats were had, I learned a lot, it was a truly inspirational day and most exciting of all, I think it's sparked the beginnings of some very exciting projects to come!

Look at that tongue, making sure he gets the last bits of the waterbuck.
I was lucky enough to be invited to Paignton Zoo to treat Sophie, a 35-year-old Aldabra giant tortoise, This is the second largest species of tortoise in the world - individuals can live for around 200 years. Sophie was experiencing some hind limb issues, and due to her massive shell, we had to be inventive with her treatment plan.  My background in teaching animal sciences and working in the zoological industry allowed me to understand the specialist management and care that is implemented by the highly-trained keepers and vets at Paignton Zoo. By designing a plan that would complement her natural behaviours, as encouraging innate behaviour is key for her management and recovery.  #veterinaryphysiotherapy #animalrehabilitation #electrotherapies #gianttortoise #aldabratortoise #cheloniamydas #reptiles #zoo #zoolife #conservation #biaza #abwak #waza #vetphysio #behaviour #positivereinforcement #enrichment #wildlife
Amur leopard, Igor. Critically endangered these cats are facing serious threats from poaching with under 100 left in the wild!  With work from conservation organisations such as @conservewildcats and zoos worldwide we can help educate people about the importance of these amazing animals and bring this species back to thrive. #criticallyendangered #cats #catsofinstagram #amurleopard #amur #nature #endangeredspecies #spots #cat #instagram #picoftheday #naturephotography #biaza #eaza #waza #wildcatsconservationalliance #wildcats #zoo #zookeeper

Amur tigers Hope and Vitali.  Aren’t they beautiful! 🐅  This rare sub-species is found in the Russian Far East and in certain areas of China. It is estimated that there are as few as 540 Amur tigers left in the wild, with habitat loss and poaching threatening the dwindling population. 🐅 📸 @alii021
If these photos don't explain why working at a zoo is the most amazing job in the world - I don't know what will! 🐵🦍🐅🐆🦓🦒🦏🦘 #lovemyjob #zoo #animals #wildlife #biaza photography conservation
