The last time tiny mammals with long Bunny ears were seen in New South Wales in 1912, since in the wild they are not met.
Australian zoologists released into the wild a group of badgers marsupial (bilby), who for the last 100 years was under threat of extinction.
30 contained in the animal facility was released on a large fenced wilderness area near the town of Narrabri, North-West of Sydney.
Without the fence, stretching for 32 km, bilby unlikely to survive. Their numbers declined sharply before the First world war, when Australia increased the number of foxes and cats.

Bilby live in burrows, and hunt at night and sleep in a strange pose: sitting on its hind legs and thrusting his muzzle between the front. The aborigines of Australia have always appreciated the fur bilby, perhaps, the active hunting of animals for their fur has also become one of the reasons for the sharp reduction in their population.
As reported by “Around the world. Ukraine” marsupial mouse may disappear due to excessive sex.
