Science & Nature Australian Animal Figurine - BANDICOOT

Science and Nature


There are two main types of bandicoots - the long-nosed and short-nosed. There are also a few rare species such as the rabbit-eared bandicoots. Bandicoots are one of the few native mammals to have remained abundant close to the major cities of Australia. In suburban Sydney it is the long-nosed species that can be seen.
