Female numbats are ready to breed at one year of age. In contrast, males only reach breeding age at around two. As mating season approaches, a gland in the middle of the male’s chest secretes a strong-smelling substance that stains its fur bright red, making the animal look almost like it has a gaping chest wound. This reddish oil is rubbed on rocks and legs to advertise the male’s presence to nearby females.
