Abalones are also called ear-shells, haliotis, sea-ears and Venus's-ears, as well as muttonfish or muttonshells in Australia, ormer in Jersey and Guernsey, perlemoen in South Africa and pāua in New Zealand. They are dying out in Victoria (Australia) due to a virus leaking out of a fish farm in South Australia.

Bill✔️ Wax-eye (Tauhou) having "an absolute ball" in a massive cluster of food-rich Kowhai flowers, a New Zealand early springtime scene. Winter can be quite hard for many birds, and for nectar-eaters, the Kowhai are the first food of the new summer season. Tui birds also wait and wait till Spring time, and will then fly up to 100kms to get the good food! (Image curation & caption: @BillGP). Bill Gibson-Patmore. Bill✔️
