Fat-tailed Dunnart - Sminthopsis cassicaudata
The fat-tailed dunnart (Sminthopsis crassicaudata) is a species of mouse-like marsupial of the Dasyuridae, the family that includes the little red kaluta, quolls, and the Tasmanian devil. It has an average body length of 60–90 millimeters (2.4–3.5 in) with a tail of 45–70 millimeters (1.8–2.8 in). Ear length is 14–16 millimeters (0.55–0.63 in). One of the smallest carnivorous marsupials, its weight varies between 10–20 grams (0.35–0.71 oz). The tail becomes fat a few mm from the proximal end and remains so right up to the tip.

I love to photograph Australian wildlife and try bringing the captured wildlife closer to my audience. By showing these beautiful animals I hope to make the viewer aware of the fragility of nature and what we need to protect.
Every day our planet loses about 200 species of plants, bird, and mammals.
I hope to capture a fraction of them before they are gone…
