This is a numbat, only found in western australia now. red foxes wiped out the entire Numbat population in Victoria, NSW, and the Northern Territory, and almost in Western Australia as well. By the late 1970s, the entire population was well under 1000 individuals, concentrated in two small areas not far from Perth, Dryandra and Perup (about a two hour drive from where I live in Albany)

Last yearI went to dryandra state forrest and there is a huge protective area there where these little guys and quite a few other aussie animals now are doing well.
