Have you every heard of a bilby? These Australian marsupials dwell in the desert. They are unfortunately endangered due to habitat loss. Bilbies’ characteristic long ears help them cool down. According to the Australian Government Department of Environment, bilbies dig extensive tunnels with their strong forelimbs, and a single bilby can have up to twelve burrows within its home.
