Kooyang: Late summer January-March


Eel season

Numbat

The Numbat is an endangered small marsupial that survives in southwest Western Australia. Due to its small size, the Numbat is hunted by many animals like feral cats, foxes, dingoes, and birds of prey. Because it is solely on termites which are active by day, the Numbat is the only diurnal (opposite of nocturnal) marsupial.


It spends nights hiding in hollow logs or burrows that are too narrow for its predators to enter. To further protect itself from predators at night, it uses its very thick-skinned rump to block the entrance. Now that’s using your behind to get ahead.
