Locally there are 6 extant mouse size mammals in the wild - House Mouse, Common Dunnart, and three Antechinus - Dusky, Agile, and Yellow Footed. Plus New Holland Mouse in restricted parts of the fenced Mulligans Flat Woodland Sanctuary. For these photos only the last 2 Antechinus can be in contention. YFA is/was a lowland species in the ACT, (never correctly recorded in Namadgi) and has contrasting head-body colouration which this lacks, so for those reasons it is an Agile Antechinus.
