Male phascogale found at Ruffy.
Male phascogale found at Ruffy.

This recently dead brush- tailed phascogale was found on a roadside , he was still warm when we picked it up and was in almost perfect condition, one front leg was broken but no other reason for the death could be found. This provided a wonderful photo opportunity . It was a young male and I think he has a smile on his face.

It was found in April 2015. The season has been favourable for the phascogale populations in Ruffy with many reported sightings.
