Description

Part of the Bearhouse Collection. Named after the world famous Berlin Zoo and is an endangered species.  The zoos play an important role in ensuring endangered species can continue to leave their paw prints in the wild.  There are ten animals in the series being released in 2022, all named after world famous zoos.  Not jointed.  33cm (13 inches).  A really nice piece.

The numbat (Myrmecobius fasciatus), also known as the noombat or walpurti, is an insectivorous marsupial. It is diurnal and its diet consists almost exclusively of termites. The species was once widespread across southern Australia, but is now restricted to several small colonies in Western Australia.  The Numbat, also called the banded anteater, is a small endangered marsupial animal native to parts of Australia. They have a long sticky tongue that allows them pick up termites, which they eat exclusively.

The Numbat is under threat from habitat loss and introduced predators like foxes and feral cats. With an estimated population of fewer than 1000 individuals, we need your help to protect the future of this unique marsupial.
