The beloved bilby is an Australian desert-dwelling marsupial that is nocturnal. The bilby lives in burrows underground to protect itself from the heat and predators. This marsupial has adapted so well to its environment that the female’s pouch faces backwards so that it does not fill with dirt when she is digging!
