March 2021: Bilby
Throughout the month of March 2021, FaunaFocus will feature the bilby!
The bilby is a semi-fossorial marsupial endemic to northwest Australia. This opportunistic, nocturnal omnivore leaves its burrow as the sun sets to forage using its large ears to disperse body heat and locate termites digging underground. This marsupial has a short gestation because young is born premature and develops in the mother’s pouch.
