Although they pair, the swans usually do not mate for life; some have as many as four mates and even “divorce” one in favor of another (Ivory 2002). While in a nesting pair, both the male and the female play important roles. When the female lays the eggs, they both incubate, but the male usually only does while the female is away. The male spends most of his time guarding the nest. A normal clutch size has about 6 eggs, but the number can range from 5-10 (Reproduction: Let’s…2007).
The Bilby, before European settlement where widely spread over around 70% of the Australian mainland than reduced to extinction in some states of Australia due to habitat loss and competition and predation from many introduced species. Through many reintroduction programs across Australia there population has now raised. The Greater Bilby is a nocturnal bandicoot, the largest of the family of marsupials.
