Thanks to the generosity of gillpolack I am now the proud possessor of a Banksia pod and some very striking views of Sydney harbour.

Banksia Hog

Isn't it pretty? In the spirit of the great Sir Joseph's Linnaean endeavours, I think I can safely say that it's is a close relative of the hedgehog, though this one thankfully is free of fleas.

Thanks, gillpolack - I'm very grateful.
