The Local Bandicoots

Most of the year excluding winter this bandicoot and a couple of others visit every night for biscuits. Weirdly they have made friends with the cats and will touch noses with them through the gate….

We think these are a subspecies of the Southern Brown Bandicoot, but we aren’t 100% sure. These marsupials are omnivorous eating a variety of insects and various things found in the soil, they also apparently really enjoy an occasional biscuit…. Normally shy creatures that most Australian’s wouldn’t generally encounter, our visiting bandicoots appear quite comfortable wandering into the back yard and saying hello to the cats.
