How's the week going, you mob?


Today, we're talking about fascinating animals and trees in Australia!


One story is about bandicoots -- these are marsupials; like kangaroos and wallabies; they just don't walk with their rear legs. Each time they dig, these little rat-looking animals contribute to the health of the ecosystem because this way, the soil catches more water and nutrients.


Another story is about the adorable squirrels! A recent study by the University of California claims that squirrels have personality types, like humans.


We also have another story about the Hollowhog. Designed by Matt Stephens from NSW, it's a wood carving tool designed to make holes in trees so that animals can live inside it.


And lastly, we talk about eucalyptus trees. A very unusual feature of eucalyptus trees is that they need fire to release their seeds, so you can actually help them by setting them on fire!
