In Bilby's Burrow, a little bilby escapes from a dingo. She gets lost and has to find her way back to the safety of her burrow. In the wild, bilbies have become rare because they are preyed on by foxes and feral cats, and rabbits compete for food. Now they are limited to desert areas where the introduced animals cant find eugh water to survive. A bilby is about the size of a rabbit and spends the day in a burrow that protects it from the heat. It feeds at night on insects and larvae, seeds, bulbs, fruit and fungi. A protection and recovery program for the bilby operates from Charleville in Queensland.
