Observations - Brush-tailed Phascogale

Brush-tailed Phascogale - Watsons Creek habitat link project

Images from Wayne Williams - taken at the Watsons Creek habitat link project which forms a link between unburnt forest in the Kinglake National Park Everard Block and Warrandyte-Kinglake Nature Conservation Reserve. 

The project incorporated the use of discarded pine and hardwood logs throughout the habitat link area. These logs have provided valuable feeding habitat for the Brush-tailed Phascogales.

Phascogale at night - taken by remote camera in  Macedon Ranges Shire

Phascogale found dead with some puncture wounds on belly, tail and back leg (cause unknown).

Note the six teats indicating this female was suckling young at the time which is a shame as they will have most probably starved.
