Christchurch fossil site
"Glen Afric (or Dovetail Stream) area is a popular fossil collecting area - especially for those wanting good fossil crab specimens (especially Tumidocarcinus giganteus).
How to get there - go north from Christchurch along SH1 until you reach where the Waipara Road and Mount Cass Rd intersect with SH. (around +/-12kms north of Amberly). Turn right into Mount Cass Rd and drive until it ends
(+/-20kms). Near the end you will come across a house near a right angle bend. Park here (you will see notices re fishing/shellfish limits no dogs and so on). If you go a little way further you will end up at the Glenafric Station homestead."

Venom and the Good Life in Tarantula Hawks
"The respective lethalities of 65 and 120 mg/kg in mice for the venoms of Pepsis formosa pattoni and P. thisbe reveal that the defensive value of stings and venom of these species is based entirely upon pain. This pain confers near absolute protection from vertebrate predators. "
