About the fact sheet
The Julia Creek Dunnart is a small, carnivorous marsupial resembling a large mouse, with brownish fur on its back and a white underbelly. Like others in its family, it has large eyes, narrow feet and a pointed snout, but is distinguished by a prominent facial stripe and dark hairy rings around the eyes and ears. Its long, tapering tail is slightly shorter than the combined head and body length.
