Bow Tie Guy of the Day: Numbat

Numbat (ˈnəmˌbat)

The numbat is a small endangered anteater from Western Australia. It is also known as the banded anteater, marsupial anteater, or walpurti. This marsupial once inhabited a large portion of Western Australia, but the introduction if the European red fox in the 19th century almost completely eliminated the species.

Since 1980 conservation has helped in increasing the population of the population.
