A list of my favorite images of dibblers.
Dibbler is the common name for Parantechinus apicalis, an endangered species of marsupial. It is a member of the order Dasyuromorphia and the only member of the genus, Parantechinus.
The dibbler is 10–16 cm long with a 7.5-12.0 cm tail; it weighs 40-125g. The distinctive features of this dasyurid include a white eye-ring, gray-brown fur flecked with white hairs and a short tapering tail.
Dibblers weigh about 40–100 grams (1.4–3.6 oz) and eat insects, small reptiles and nectar. The dibbler is a solitary, mostly nocturnal species.
It has strong jaws and large canine teeth for killing prey, which include small vertebrates such as mice, birds and lizards, as well as insects and other invertebrates. The breeding season for the species is March–April.
The dibbler's habitat is an unburnt vegetation area with a thick litter layer and sandy soils.
The dibbler is found in southwestern Western Australia including the Torndirrup Peninsula south of Albany.
It is also found on Boullanger Island, Whitlock Island and Escape Island off Jurien Bay, some national parks/reserves, including Fitzgerald River National Park, Peniup Creek Reserve (where it was re-introduced) and at the Stirling Range National Park (where it was re-introduced).
