What's a Numbat?

Many years ago, a young library patron asked me to help him find information on a "numbat." Now, I'd heard of a wombat, but not a numbat, and back in those pre-Internet days, it wasn't too easy to find any references to such a creature. After much paging through books and encyclopedias, we had success. Thanks to the Animal Diversity Web, one of the websites highlighted under Kids' Homework Help on the Milwaukee Public Library's Recommended Links page, finding information on this Australian marsupial is much easier.
