The numbat is the most evolutionarily distinct marsupial in the world, having no real living relatives. In fact, its closest relation is the now-extinct Thylacine, or Tasmanian tiger. It is one of only two marsupials that is diurnal, has no pouch, and is the only marsupial and feeds exclusively on social insects. Once widespread throughout Australia, it is now extinct in 99% of its former range.
