01 Jul What Animal Am I?
It’s What Animal Am I Wednesday!
Let’s hear from this week’s guest.
Thanks for having me as the mystery animal today! Can you guess who I am?
I am a small, grey-brown marsupial.
I have a white throat and chest, with a pale grey belly and a dark stripe on my back running from my head to the middle of my back.
I have a pale stripe on my cheek and my tail can have a white tip.
When I am hopping, I remain close to the ground with my forearms tucked tightly against my body. I usually live in forests with a thick, shrubby understorey.
I am nocturnal (which means I am active night). I feed at night, eating yummy things like grasses and herbs, and during the day, I like to shelter in dense bushes and shrubs.
Can you guess who I am?
