Series of side and front elevation illustrations of the Numbat with length and height measurements

The Numbat (Myrmecobius fasciatus) is a marsupial that lives in areas of eucalypt forests in Western Australia; the species has been recently reintroduced to South Australia. The Numbat has a finely pointed muzzle and a prominent, bushy tail. They vary considerably in color from soft gray to red-brown, and there is often an area of brick red on the upper back. A black stripe runs from the tip of the muzzle through the eyes, to the bases of the small, round-tipped ears. There are between four and eleven white stripes across the animal’s hindquarters. As insectivores, the Numbat mostly eats termites.

Series of assorted elevation illustrations of the Numbat sitting and standing upright

Numbats have a shoulder height of 5”-7” (13-18 cm), body length between 8”-11.5” (20-29 cm), and an overall weight in the range of .6-1.25 lb (.3-.6 kg). The tail of the Numbat is 4.5”-8” (12-21 cm_ in length. Numbats have a typical lifespan of 4-5 years in the wild and up to 8 years in captivity.

Marsupials are mammals characterized by the pouch the mother has for raising and protecting her young. Marsupials are most commonly associated with Austrailia, where Kangaroos and Koalas are found, but marsupials, specifically the opposum, are also found in North, Central, and South America.
