The numbat Myrmecobius fasciatusis is an emblem of Western Australia. It is a small endangered marsupial protected by conservation programs. They have a long sticky tongue that allows them pick up termites, which they eat exclusively. The Numbat is under threat from habitat loss and introduced predators like foxes and feral cats with an estimated population of fewer than 1000 individuals. The common name, numbat, originated from the mispronunciation of the Noongar name, noombat.
We love numbats. We love baby numbats too.
