Where: Several small colonies in Western Australia.
How many: Estimated at less than 1000 (As of 2010)
Why: The deliberate release of the European red fox in the 19th century wiped out nearly all of the numbat population. Numbats are active during the day and at night and this makes them vulnerable to many predators including the little eagle, brown goshawk, collared sparrowhawk and carpet python.
