29 Apr What Animal Am I?
It’s What Animal Am I Wednesday!!
Let’s hear from this week’s guest:
“Hello friends! Thanks for having me on today!
I am a famously feisty carnivorous marsupial, meaning I have a pouch where I raise my young.
Being nocturnal, I spend most of my nights wandering great distances (up to 16km) in search of carcasses or live food like wallabies, other small mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and insects.
I have a reputation of being aggressive, with my sharp teeth and fierce noises, but this is only usually when I’m scared or to assert my dominance when I’m feeding.
I can give birth to between 20 and 30 raisin-sized young called Joey’s, but as I only have four teats in my pouch, many don’t survive.
I was once native to mainland Australian, but now I can only be found in Tasmania.
Can you guess what animal I am?”
