Wally – checking to see if I have some mealworms!
Wally is a Julia Creek dunnart. The Julia Creek dunnart (Sminthopsis douglasi) is a native marsupial, currently classed as near threatened.
Typically found on 8000 km² in the Mitchel Grass downs of riparian grassland’s, between Julia Creek and Richmond in Queensland, it possibly occurs in the Mitchell Plateau of Western Australia. The Prickly Acacia is a threat to its habitat as it kills native grasslands. Cultivation and introduced species also threatens this dasyurid’s habitat.
