Karkarratul is the proper name for the Northern Marsupial Mole of Australia. It is a burrowing marsupial, spending most of its time underground, and it is blind.
I am a Marsupial Mole native to Australia.

The Marsupial Mole of Australia is both deaf and blind.
I don't think that wombats have a need to dive. They land dwelling marsupial mammals that live in burrows and forage for vegetation on the ground.
Wombats do not hibernate. Wombats shelter in burrows or hollow logs, but they do not hibernate. The only Australian marsupial or mammal that hibernates is the mountain pygmy possum.
Several things are unique to, and therefore strange about, the marsupial mole of Australia.It is completely blind, with its eyes nothing more than vestigial lenses beneath its skin.Its ears have no external surface. They are mere tiny holes beneath the animal's thick fur.The seven bones in its neck are fused together, so that it cannot move the position of its head.It burrows through the sand, but it burrows so close to the surface that the tunnels that it creates are filled in right behind it. This is called sand swimming. It may also turn downward suddenly, or may briefly walk on the surface of the sand.Being a marsupial, it has a pouch. The pouch faces backwards so as to not fill with soil.Its tail is a mere stub.Upon its discovery, it was first classified as a monotreme.
There is no actual single species known as a marsupial mouse. Marsupial mouse is the rather misleading name given to various tiny dasyurids, or carnivorous marsupials of Australia. Animals which some under the broad heading of marsupial mice include the antechinus, dibbler, ningaui, phascogale, planigale, kultarr, dunnart, kaluta, mulgara and kowari. Marsupial mice are burrowing creatures, and nocturnal. They dig burrows for shelter and protection, and tend to only come out at night, so their biggest predators are owls and other nocturnal creatures.
Very little is known about either the northern marsupial mole (kakarratul) or the southern marsupial mole (itjaritjari). They are solitary animals which spend most of their time underground, so this is their main defence. As well as burrowing just below the surface of the ground in desert areas, they dig deeper burrows, where they are relatively safe from potential predators.
its actually a marsupial a its a wombat that looks in the the night to look for its food its half deff and half blind it lives in austraila

There is actually no such creature as a marsupial sloth. The cuscus, a marsupial related to the possum, is the closest animal to a marsupial sloth.
A sloth is not a marsupial.
No, an alpaca is not a marsupial.
Yes, an opossum is a marsupial. Marsupials have pouches, so a opossum is a marsupial.
Are honey badgers marsupial
No. The star-nosed marsupial is not a marsupial, but a placental mammal. The only marsupial moles are found in northern Australia.
There is no such animal as the "southern marsupial". However, if there was such an animal, it would mist likely be a marsupial. The vast majority of marsupial species are nocturnal.
A marsupial is a kind of mammal. A kangaroo is a kind of marsupial. Therefore, a kangaroo is both a marsupial and a mammal. Though, they are technically considered a marsupial, because it is a more specific sub-class than the broad term mammals.
Yes she is, Gigi Burrows is payton's cousin Payton Burrows told me over webcam, I even met payton and gigi burrows. How did u do webcam with payton burrows??
Kiwi do not live in burrows, but they do dig out burrows for nesting.

NO. A Kangaroo is a marsupial, a wallaby is a marsupial, a koala is a marsupial, but a cow is NOT a marsupial. She does not have a pouch to raise her young in, and her mammary glands are out in the open, not in a pouch like with a marsupial.
A raccoon is not a marsupial. It is a placental mammal.
The opossum is a marsupial.
