The Bilby

Bilby

\s an australian animal and is a small animal that is almost extinct. Bilbies have the characteristic long bandicoot muzzle and very long ears. They are about 29-55 cm in length. As compared with bandicoots, they have a longer tail, bigger ears, and softer, silky fur. The size of their ears allows them to have better hearing as well. They are nocturnal omnivores that do not need to drink water, as they get all the moisture they need from their food, which includes insects and their larvae, seeds, spiders, bulbs, fruit, fungi and very small animals. Most food is found by digging or scratching in the soil, and using their very long tongues.
