I was reading one of your newsletters about the Brush-tailed Phascogale. We have owned our 150 acre property near Esk for over ten years. On several occasions we have spotted these little guys. Only the other night I saw one as I was having a shower (we have an outside shower). She lives in an old ironbark. Just wanted to share my story. These photos have been taken over the years. I have also found two dead males and a few tails. They say the male dies after he mates. Poor bugger.

Hope you find these pics of interest.

Editor: Thanks Varinia these are fabulous images. Phascogales move so fast, it is difficult to get good photos, so congratulations and thanks for sharing them.
