Some males can be the colour of bluebush, while the females are generally blue-grey and smaller. This 'roo is sooty grey tinged with a rust colour, and is adapted to scrub and woodland communities. Western greys are commonly known as 'scrubbers', possibly due to their appearance, or their habitat.
This is very similar in appearance to a western grey, but doesn't have the western grey's tell-tale black fur on its extremities.
These monotremes are highly specialised feeders, devouring ants, termites, grub larvae, worms, mites, insect pupae and small spiders. They seek out food by ripping open logs and stumps or digging into ant mounds and nests, guided by smell and minute electrical signals detected in the snout.In summer you'll probably see echidnas more at dawn and dusk, but in the cooler months they can be found throughout the day, taking advantage of the temperate conditions. Look closely at an echidna and you'll see a layer of fur between the spines, the colour of which varies with the environments they live in.The echidna usually seeks shelter in rabbit or wombat burrows, hollow logs or thick bushes, while females build their own burrows when incubating or suckling their young.
Although echidnas are known to hibernate in the cold regions of the east and south, it's unlikely that they do this as far west as Mungo National Park. A number of small and medium-sized mammals have become extinct in the Willandra area since white settlement (see Recent Changes), but others still survive. These include two mouse-sized, carnivorous marsupials: the Fat-tailed Dunnart (Sminthopsis crassicaudata), which stores fat in its tail for lean times and whose nocturnal tracks can often be seen on the dunes and the Common Dunnart (S. The Southern Ningaui (Ningaui yvonneae) is a tiny but energetic predator that weighs only about 10 grams. This ningaui is endangered by loss of habitat, predation by foxes and cats, grazing and frequent fires.In the evenings, you might see small insect-eating bats (microbats) flitting around the sky. Bats are the most diverse group of mammals in Willandra, with nine species including the endangered Little Pied Bat (Chalinolobus picatus). These microbats roost in hollow trees, and sometimes in old farm buildings.Birds Mungo supports a wide variety of bird life, mainly due to the varied landforms and habitat of the region. About 150 species can be seen here, but some are more conspicuous than others.While bushwalking through the mallee community for example, there's a good chance you'll spot some Mallee Ringnecks (Barnardius zonarius). These parrots hang out in flocks or pairs, and can be identified by their green plumage and creamy-yellow neck band. They're about 30 cm long and, like most parrots, are brightly coloured and wonderful to watch. They usually nest in tree hollows and feed on grass seeds, herbs, berries, fruit, buds and blossoms, as well as the seeds of red gum and Yorrell.A very sociable animal, especially around campgrounds, is the grey Apostlebird (Struthidea cinerea), so named because they hang around in family groups, sometimes of about a dozen birds. They are also referred to locally as 'bludger birds', because they're always on the lookout for food scraps. Generally each species has a specific drinking time, and once you've worked these out, you can be ready to watch each species at its favourite time. At times there may only be a handful of birds drinking, while at others the watering spot will be bustling with excitement and intense chatter as the birds come in for a drink during a dry spell. These are perfect opportunities for observing the interactions and specific characters of some of these outback birds.If you're visiting the lakebed, which is covered with various species of saltbush and bluebush, keep an eye out for the Orange Chat (Epthianura aurifrons).
The male will be an orange-red colour and the female more of an orange-yellow.Much more brilliant however, is the Crimson Chat (Epthianura tricolor), which can be found within the bushes along the edges of mallee habitat.
The female has mottled tinges of red on her forehead, and the same on her cream belly, while the male displays a vivid red bonnet and apron.Chats are highly colourful little creatures and are among the few small birds that walk, but do not hop.
They have a brush-like tip on their tongue, assumed to be an adaptation for extracting nectar from the flowering plants of the region. This tan-coloured bird with darker, pointed wing-tips is amazing to watch as it hovers in place watching for signs of movement on the ground, perhaps a mouse, an invertebrate, or something from the reptile kingdom.Once sighted, the little kestrel tucks in its wings and dives straight for its target. Forty species of reptiles have been recorded here, including ten species of gecko and sixteen species of skinks.The largest reptile in the park is the harmless Carpet Python (Morelia spilota), which can grow up to four metres long, but is more likely to be two metres. These animals are models of patience, as they will hang from a branch over a known animal track for up to a week.
The snake will wait for something to pass by, and if nothing does, it will simply pack up camp and try somewhere else.The Carpet Python is a beautiful snake, with superb pale to dark brown colouring with black splotches and yellow patterned markings over the full length of the body.
The under surface is cream or yellow blotched with dark grey.You probably won't come across a snake in or around the park's campsites, but they are not uncommon outside the camping area. It's best not to take chances though, and to be aware that they're around and that it's their home you are visiting.
Their diet consists of vegetable matter such as fruit and berries or ground blossoms, but they will also eat insects and snails.The Lined Earless Dragon (Tympanocryptis lineata lineata) lives in many of the different habitats of Mungo. It's quite attractive in its brown, black and orange outfit, with thin white stripes running the length of its body. It lacks visible ear openings - hence the name.While you're driving around or hiking, keep an eye on fence posts, stumps, and shrubs, where you are likely to see a Bearded Dragon (Pogona barbata).
Being reptiles and cold blooded, they use the energy of the sun to regulate their body temperature. The Common Spade Foot Toad (Neobatrachus sudelli), Long Thumbed Frog (Limnodynastes fletcheri) and the Spotted Grass Frog (L. The threatened Painted Burrowing Frog (Neobatrachus pictus) may also potentially live here.InvertebratesMany of the mammals and birds in Mungo rely on invertebrates such as beetles, bugs, spiders and insect larvae for food. Some invertebrates rely on the vegetation of the park for food and protection from the surrounding environment.
