- Officially listed as vulnerable on the EPBC endangered species list, numbat numbers in the wild have been experiencing long-term decline.
- The Numbat is the faunal emblem of Western Australia.
- Numbats can survive in very dry habitats, they obtain all the water they need to survive through the termites they eat.
- Numbats tongues are 20cm long, that’s half the length of their body and exclusively eat termites - they can eat up to 20,000 each day.
