Summary: 
These young Mainland Dusky Antechinus (Antechinus mimetes) have just been deposited by their mother in a ground-level nest made of dry tree leaves and grass. Aged only 6–7 weeks, these young wriggle vigorously to the bottom of the nest if they are disturbed, causing the rest of the nest to collapse and cover them with dry leaf debris. This reduces the risk that they will be detected and eaten by larger predators. Source: Chris Dickman.
