This tiny marsupial, Tarsipes rostratus, is found in the south of Western Australia, being most common in regions of high Proteaceae diversity. Its entire source of food is nectar and pollen from a diverse range of flowering plants, and is often an important pollinator; similar mammals are all bats.
It is mainly nocturnal, but will come out in daylight to feed during cooler weather. A prehensile tail and opposing toe on the long hind-foot enables it to climb.
It is pictured here amongst Acorn Banksias, Banksia prionotes, a native of its habitat.
