Another Tuan caught on camera

February 26, 2012

Inspired by the variety of wildlife turning up at the bird-bath on Ron and Kate’s Flowerdale property, we installed a new bath close to some eucalypts and a firewood stack in our front yard, and set up one of our motion-sensor cameras. Lo and behold, on the very first night, we recorded a very healthy-looking Brush-tailed Phascogale. This site is about 10km from Ron and Kate’s, so we can safely assume it is a different animal from the one recorded there. It is in fact very close to the nest-box where we first recorded a phascogale in February last year. Click HERE to view the post featuring that sighting.

The results from our camera surveys are starting to show that the Brush-tailed Phascogale may be more common and widespread than we first thought.
