Description

This art print is a reproduction of an original watercolour painting by Chris Spiker.

'Numbat' (Myrmecobius fasciatus)

Numbats, also known as Banded Anteaters, feed during the daylight hours, which is unusal for mammals. At about 40cm long, the Numbat is a ground dweller of mostly Wandoo forests, where timber also provides exclusive feeding source where adult Numbats consume around 20,000 termites per day mostly during the cool of the morning and late afternoon. While they are a solitary animal, they travel long distances to find a mate and rear four young between January and March and are then nursed through winter by the mother.

The Numbat was proclaimed the animal emblem of Western Australia on 25 July 1973.
