S – Sea lion and Stylidium species

When visiting Kangaroo Island, our tour took in Seal Bay. This included a guided tour explaining about the endangered sea lion colony. There were also colonies of New Zealand fur seals on the island.



Stylidium species

In Tasmania we have a pink species of Stylidium but I also took a photo of a yellow plant in Western Australia. These plants are also called trigger plants. When an insect lands on the flower, the male and female reproductive organs which are fused together, snaps forward quickly.
