Long-Footed Potoroo – tail wagging

This clip is of yet another endangered Long-footed Potoroo displaying a very prehensile and expressive tail. It was recently found (Winter 2010) in another patch of forest planned for logging. The survey crew who are now known as “Fauna and Flora Research Collective” found this using the infrared cameras. VicForests have been notified of the presence and hopefully will withdraw plans to log the forest. But so far, their record isn’t good.
