(Antechinus agilis)

The Agile Antechinus is usually found in dry areas of Nungurner. They are small carnivorous animals which nest in tree hollows and hunt only at ground level.

They eat a diverse range of plants and animals including spiders, beetles, cockroaches, small lizards and soft berries.

Distinguish them from brown house mice by their pronounced snout, lack of large front teeth and nor do they have the typical musty smell of mice.

To assist these timid animals to hunt and breed we should allow undergrowth to form to provide them with safety.
