So what is a northern bettong?
This species tends to be solitary. It builds three or four nests, out of leaves, grass, and bark, underneath grass trees or thick shrubs, and uses them at random. Since they're nocturnal, they stay in their nests throughout the day. These animals don't hibernate. At the moment, the Northern Bettong can't really migrate because they depend on the fungi that originates from the eucalyptus tree and it is already scarce, partly because of forest fires. Foxes, dogs and cats are the Northern Bettong's main predators.
