A lucky visitor to Dhilba Guuranda-Innes National Park captured photos of a young brush-tailed bettong (known as yalgi to Narungga).
Northern and Yorke Landscape Board Ecologist Derek Sandow believes it’s a juvenile male yalgi and looks like one born on southern Yorke Peninsula, because it doesn’t appear to have an ear tag, which were fitted to the animals translocated from WA and Wedge Island.
If you’re visiting the park, please take care to drive carefully and according to the speed limits to avoid injuring these precious new inhabitants.
Thanks to Dr Derek Rogers, Suitcase Photography for sharing his yalgi photos.
