For every videographer and photographer out there.... you might have footage of an unexpected new species!!!  I almost didn't ask about this one but it made the day of Mark McGrouther at the Australian Museum......  They didn't know it existed until the early 2000's and it took them another 10 years to figure out what colour it was live!

A delightful bit of history, research and perseverance!

 

If I had one wish, I'd get rid of the background music - it made it very difficult to understand what the narrator was saying at times...

Very nice interview.  I do agree with wydeangle about the music being distracting at times, though.

Thanks guys - my understanding is that the video production company that the museum uses for many of its movie stories pulled together the video - if I ever meet the people that did the video, I'll pass on your feedback.
