On this adventure Mark is in Western Australia for the first time tracking down a living spike ball and one of Australia’s most endangered species.
First, he shows you why it’s not a good idea to hold Australia’s spikiest creature, as he's spiked by the Echidna! Covered from head to tail with thick spines this animal’s self-defense gives Mark a hand full of pain trying to present its other interesting features.
Then he sets off to find one of the last living relatives of the extinct Tasmanian Tiger, the Numbat. Will he find one? Watch and find out!
Do you have any endangered species that live by you? If so, tell us about them in the comments and what you would do to save them from going extinct. Who knows, depending on your idea we might come out to film an adventure with you!

The numbat is the state emblem of Western Australia. They used to inhabit half the state, as well as most of South Australia. Dryandra is pretty much their last refuge. Most West Aussies will never see their own state emblem outside of a zoo. Far too many other native species have suffered the same losses.

We drive round Dryandra to see and photograph the Numbats. Always a challenging day, but they are amazing creatures and so worth the effort. As for the echidna, find one, wait for it to waddle along and get down on the floor in front of it for an epic image

Lake Talquin, Next to Tallahassee Florida, has a high population of alligator snapping turtles. I've unintentionally caught maybe half a dozen of them while fishing. I have a video of one that was very big. Probably 50 + pounds. If coyotes wants to catch big snappers, he should come to Lake Talquin.

Seen the tassie twice, my father present for both and he saw one in around 1991 in the coco Creek. The way that thing lopes along to gain ridiculous speed is hard to describe but, here I go: The back legs propel the animal forward, while they retract for another propulsive push, the front legs "run" like mad keeping momentum. A kangaroos spring with a dog's ability to run like hell. That face, when those Jaws open its something else but the creature is fearful like a fox but will slam a roo like I slam a beer on a Friday night. That was the short version.
