Subject: The Brush-tailed Phascogale - Australian marsupial Dimensions (centimeters): 60 x 45 Medium: Oil Description: Depicted here in its nocturnal active state, this group of Brush-tailed Phascogales is emerging from their nesting hollow. A largely arboreal marsupial, the Phascogale tends to forage over a large area of forest, resulting in only small groups living over wide home ranges. This means the species is threatened by the loss and fragmentation of forest habitat as well as predation from animals such as foxes and cats. The population of Brush-tailed Phascogales in Australia has been severely reduced and the animal is now classed as being vulnerable.
Unfortunately, the low density of this species makes it particularly susceptible to similar threats to its habitat in the future.
