Dibbler by Ryan S.
What it looks like Fur Claws Teeth Ring around eyes Head The dibbler is the size of a rat. It ways 40 to 145 grams. Dibbler
Where dibblers live! The dibbler lives on a small island in Australia. The dibbler does not have much known about where it lives. It probably needs to live somewhere else because it doesn't live long.
The DIBBLER'S diet The dibbler is a carnivore that eats bugs mostly. It sometimes eats baby animals. The dibbler is small so it doesn’t have a large diet.
Abilities The small dibbler runs quickly for its size. If we could run that fast for our size we would probably be faster than cheetahs. The dibber has the ability of catching its food easily.
What we can do to save the DIBBLER! We should tell farmers not to take land from the island where the dibblers live. We should get many in captivity and build their population.
