💖The A-Z of animals💖
Bilbies are well adapted for survival in the semi-arid and arid areas of Australia but they are under threat. They are listed as vulnerable nationally and endangered in Queensland.
The Greater Bilby is a solitary, nocturnal, omnivorous marsupial.
Remaining wild population occupies three major habitat types:
open tussock grasslands on uplands and hills
mulga woodland / shrubland on ridges and rises
hummock grasslands in plains and alluvial areas.
Bilbies are fossorial and may have many burrows within an occupied home range.
Bilby home ranges shift with food availability and are highly variable in size, examples recorded include 20–50ha (south-west Queensland) and 110–300ha (Northern Territory). ‘Burrow ranges’ are considerably smaller than home ranges.
Males are generally larger (800–2500g) and heavier than females (600–1100g). Females can be reproductively active at 5 months, males at 8 months.
Litters number 1–3 offspring (usually 2). Generation time is about 4 years.
Longevity in wild and captivity is up to 11 years.
predation (by foxes, cats, dingoes)
habitat (cover) loss through very large fires
grazing by rabbits/livestock (actual extent of threat unclear)
Dingo predation of feral cats has been recorded and is thought to be important in limiting cat densities where dingoes occur. This suggests that precautions are necessary when planning fox/cat control techniques.

Beer Log: Saturdays with the kids are always good no matter where we are, or what we're doing. Aiming to finish with a movie and desert before bed. The kids can have ice cream🍦 and topping🍨, I'll have one of these..... Raspberry Rye Milk Porter by @dainton.beer #Australian 🇦🇺 #CraftBeer#CraftBrew#CraftBrewing 355ml 6% a.b.v. 23 IBU
Pours opaque, jet black with thin tan head and average retention. Aromas of chocolate, covonut & raspberry.
Big roasty chocolate flavour up front. No patent tar detectable. Great balance with the chocolate 🍫malt, raspberry 🍓tart/sweetness, lactic🥛 sweetness and earthy/soft spiciness of the rye. Complex and subtle. Layered. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Long, roast chocolatey finish. Flavour complexity improves as it warms. As usual from Dainton, very well crafted & balanced. They never disappoint!🍻👍🏼 #CraftBeerNotCrapBeer#BeerBlokes#CraftBeerBlokes#BeerChicks#CraftBeerChicks#BeerPorn#BeerFreak#BeerGeek#BeerNerd#BeerSnob#NiceCans#YesWeCan

Some exciting and totally not business related news today!
This week we became Australian citizens! 🇦🇺 I’m originally from South Africa 🇿🇦 and my husband and son are English 🇬🇧 but after more than 5 years in Australia (and over 12 months waiting for citizenship!) we’re so proud to call Australia home.
Normally I’m not a selfie kinda girl but I’m trying to put myself on the other side of the camera 📷
I know as a consumer I love seeing the people behind the business so it’s time for me to do as a business what I’d like as a customer!
Shout out to @shweshwe_roots for my gorgeous earrings for the occasion!
