Numbat, also called as the bander anteater is a small rare marsupial animal native to some parts of Australia. They have a very long sticky tongue, which enables them to pick up termites that they eat.

They are slender animals, along with small upright ears and small pointed head, long bushy tail and four short legs with long claws.

It’s grey-brown to reddish in color together with white and black banding on the rump and back, long black stripe across its eyes and beige underbelly.
