This rodent digs its tunnels and home (lodge) under felled trees, and so is increasing where commercial logging occurs. It lives alone and its tunnel openings lead directly to food such as bark, twigs, shoots, and soft plants, which it brings back to eat or store. Also known as the sewellel, it climbs well and destroys many small trees. The long fur is black to red-brown above, yellow-brown beneath, with a white spot below each ear.
