The amazing Australian Numbat
Numbats are pint sized Australian marsupials that have faced down some serious threats to their existence but these brave little battlers are hanging on. Predated by cats and foxes and surviving habitat loss there is promising evidence there is hope. Weighing a tiny 500g these distinctive striped cuties hunt for food during the day eating an astounding 20,000 termites a day. They only live up to about 5 years and their habitat is Western Australia.
