  1. Had never heard of this mammal, even though captive ones were already on the site. Thanks for sharing another rare mammal! Posted 2 years ago
    1. You are welcome☺️. It‘s actually an old picture... We were very fortunate indeed. We were watching 3 playful youngsters for several hours until they disapeared into the forest. Posted 2 years ago

The numbat , also known as the banded anteater, marsupial anteater, or ''walpurti'', is a marsupial found in Western Australia. Its diet consists almost exclusively of termites. Once widespread across southern Australia, its range is now restricted to several small colonies, and it is listed as an endangered species. The numbat is an emblem of Western Australia and protected by conservation programs.
