The Biological World:
On this episode of SCOPE; we put our living, breathing planet under the microscope as we explore the biological world! We learn all about the bizarre looking weedy sea dragon, we take an in-depth look at our teeth and we explore how fish tell each other apart!

Weedy Sea Dragon:
Meet Sam Fawke from SeaLife Melbourne Aquarium, as he explains the intricacies of breeding one of the world's most bizarre looking sea creatures; the weedy sea dragon!

What's in a Tooth?:
Teeth aren't just great at chewing food! As Kathleen Paul from the University of Adelaide explains, they can also help scientists learn about human evolution and our collective past!

DIY Science - Does your nose know?:
Flowers don't just smell great to us. Their aroma is also used to attract birds and insects! But what part of the flower has the most pungent scent and why? Junior Scientist Marnie investigates!

Genetic Backburning:
The cane toad has been invading backyards around Australia for more than 80 years! Luckily for us, scientists like Dr Ben Phillips and Emily Gregg from Melbourne University, are working around the clock to put a halt on the spread of these pesky pests once and for all!

Funny Fish Face:
What do human and fish both have in common? They can recognise their friend's faces! Well, that is according to Dr Uli Siebeck from the University of Queensland! She's been researching how fish use UV patterns on their faces to recognise each other!

All that and more on another enriching episode of SCOPE: where the ordinary becomes extraordinary!
