Yes it is Suzi. I'd imagine, if trained, they could tell us where the small newt species were too.

The Eurasian Badger reportedly has a sense of smell rated at an amazing 600x more powerful than ours.

Just in case you haven't heard, this was in the news today.
Nothing to do with UK herp species, but probably of interest to many here.

In a similar vein, saw this in last months Fortean Times - an eel that lives in soil...

I didn't know the Fortean Times was still going! I never see it these days, though that might just be because only the larger newsagents (with hundreds of magazine titles i can't be bothered to sift through) stock it. Nice to know it's still available though - I'm sure Charlie would be chuffed.

Before it became all tattoos and tits, 'Bizarre' used to be good too.

yeah, still going strong, I get it delivered as can't be bothered to try to hunt for it, same with Viz!

Somehow they still manage to keep getting enough interesting articles after all these years, I can still recommend it, really look forward to receiving it. This month has a big article on strange goings on just up the road from us in Hythe, Vicki's dad remembers it all happening - phantom soldiers, weird lights, headless figures etc, all along one stretch of road in the early 60's.
