If you pick up a copy of this months Australian Geographic magazine (issue 144) you’ll see a 5 page article I wrote about my search for the third, and most recently discovered Taipan - The Western Desert Taipan (Oxyuranus temporalis), with Tim Squires.
With there being less than 20 recorded encounters in the wild with this snake, it was not only one of the best experiences of my career, but also my first time being published in such an iconic Australian magazine. Please grab a copy and come on the journey with me into the remote Great Victoria Desert to see what we found. There’s also an online gallery of images. Check it out at:
