The Black-footed Tree-rat is not a destructive, disease-carrying intruder like the Brown Rat but a true Australian native.
A good climber, it eats fruit and insects and builds its nest in a tree hollow. It’s also a fast runner. Mothers can speed through the forest with three young, clamped tightly on her teats, dragging along behind her.
Our iconic Aussie is in danger. Please help us keep them around forever.
