Wambenger, also known as the brush-tailed phascogale is a small carnivorous marsupial found in south-western Western Australia. These squirrel-like athletes are very agile and active and boast one of the most flexible ankle joints in the mammal world (they can nearly rotate a remarkable 180 degrees), which makes them well suited for life in the trees. Wambenger tap their toes on the bark and wood of trees when alarmed, to warn their predators that they have been spotted. Wambenger mostly eat insects but may also feast on some flowers and nectar. After the winter breeding, all males die, making the ultimate sacrifice to allow more food to be available to the mothers and their young. Wambenger create well-insulated nests in small tree hollows and cavities.
