Spinifex Hopping Mice

Spinifex Hopping Mice

The spinifex hopping mouse, also known as the tarkawara or tarrkawarra, occurs throughout the central and western Australian arid zones, occupying both spinifex-covered sand flats and stabilised sand dunes, and loamy mulga. They are now under threat from feral cats and foxes which are having massive impacts on the wild population.
