Little terror

The narrow-nosed planigale is one of Australia's smallest marsupials, and one of the toughest. Most of its meals are larger than it is, and will include scorpions and huge moths. In the underground cracks in which it shelters, it is almost 15 degrees cooler than out in the sun of the desert, but snakes are a constant threat. The inland taipan, for instance, is the world's deadliest snake and often slithers through the crevices in search of a meal.
