Agile Antechinus (Antechinus agilis)
….a species of dasyurid marsupial which is restricted wet and moist forests southeastern corner of Australia. Agile antechinus are mainly insectivorous, feeding on insects and occasionally small vertebrates and berries. Like all members of the genus Antechinus, A. agilis has a short and violet breeding season which causes all the males to die after breeding.
Orange-footed Scrubfowl (Megapodius reinwardt)
…a species of megapode (Megapodiidae) which occurs in southern New Guinea, northern Australia and many islands in Wallacea. M. rienwardt typically inhabits a wide range of forests and scrubland. Like other galliform birds orange-footed srubfowl are chiefly terrestrial and will forage for seeds, fallen fruit, and a range of invertebrates. In typical megapode fashion orange-footed scrubfowl do not incubate their eggs with body heat, but instead will build a massive mound of decaying vegetation and sand to keep their eggs incubated.
