Numbat (Myrmecobius fasciatus). Gorgeous little marsupial that exclusively dines upon termites, hence the long tongue. Unfortunately, mainly due to predation by introduced species like foxes, Numbat has become endangered, and is limited only to a few scattered populations in the southern Australia.
