Who’s that sleeping in the daytime, looking for its food at night?
Smells its food from far away, hopping, scurrying along.
Digging a burrow in the darkness, Hiding from predators each day.
I sleep deep inside a burrow, I can dig three metres down.
I like eating flies and insects and I like some fruit and seeds.
I look a little like a rabbit, or like a baby kangaroo…
I’m a bilby!
