Did you know?
The bilby is a solitary, nocturnal, omnivorous marsupial.  The female bilby has a pregnancy which can last between 12 to 14 days.  A baby bilby is called a joey and when it is born it looks like a jelly bean with legs.  It remains in its mother’s pouch for between 75 to 80 days.  Bilby can live for 6 to 7 years in the wild and 11 years in captivity.
