Ever wonder if there was an animal a bit like a Fox, but not as vicious?
Or perhaps something like a Squirrel, but not as small and something that stayed on the ground all the time?
Well, may I introduce to you the Numbat - a colourful, Australian, meat-eating marsupial that fits both descriptions perfectly!
Yes, the cute Fox-Squirrel-thing DOES exist (and comes with a handy pouch!), but like most amazing creatures there are not very many of them left. Perhaps with enough fame and recognition they could come back from the brink of not-existing-at-all and be like the Kangaroo, universally loved and too numerous for their own good.
