[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Numbat (Myrmecobius fasciatus) is an endearing marsupial which feeds exclusively on termites. It is a small animal, about a foot long without the tail. It has become very rare because of the clearing of native vegetation and predation from introduced foxes and feral cats. There is only a small wild population left in a reserve in the SW of Western Australia, while originally the species was widespread over most of the southern part of the continent.
This individual was photographed at the Perth Zoo which has a very successful breeding and re-introduction program.

Hello Odile,
A new species for me and what a beautiful one at that. Love the unusual striped marking and contrasting rufous, black and cream colors. The black eye stripe makes it look like a bandit. Great exposure considering the challenging lighting you had to deal with.

Bonjour Odile,
Agréable valorisation du sujet dans son environnement.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hi Odile
It looks a bit similar to the extinct Thylacine.
Interesting species.
