Southern Ningaui (the Southern what??)

This week on Bring Down The Birds Dr Watson presents one of Australia’s lesser known marsupials instead of a Bird Of The Week. It is small but ferocious (if you are an insect, spider or small lizard) and it could easily be written off as a mouse….it is the Southern Ningaui (Ningaui yvonnae)! This beautiful, tiny Australian marsupial is in the Dasyuridae family, alongside Tasmanian devils, quolls, dunnarts, and the extinct Tasmanian tiger. Found in semi-arid parts of Vic, SA and WA, the Southern Ningaui is a cryptic, nocturnal, terrestrial species. Females are mature from approximately six months of age and give birth to five to seven joeys, usually in Oct/Nov. Adult Ningaui only live for about 12 – 14 months.
