Brush-tailed Phascogale


Feral Cat - high level predator in our native ecosystem

This feral cat was stalking a Sugar Glider in an artificial hollow nest box on private property near Hepburn Regional Park.  It was also in an area about 1 km from a permanent Brush-tailed Phascogale monitoring site.  The chances are the feral cat would eventually get its prey by direct capture or starving the Sugar Glider as it could not leave the box. Night vision images provided by Richard Pleasance.
