Some of our most difficult questions are about holes. Holes in soil can be made by mammals, insects, spiders, crustaceans, and even birds.

Can you tell me what animal makes these holes in the rainforest floor and plugs them with leaves? They are spaced about a metre apart and have no silk lining so I don’t think they are made by spiders. I have found them in two locations near the Queensland and New South Wales border.
Although I am a zoologist I haven’t seen anything like this specimen before and have trouble placing it into any groups or families that I know. Its length is approximately 70mm. It has no real feet, instead a series of grouped spines are present along its body. What is it?
What is the significance of the picture of the cow at the base of Nesperennub’s mummy?
