Great shot, Rob - based on the sticks and twigs around him, he appears to be a little critter.

Thanks Tony! They are fascinating little animals.

They can grow up to 50cm (20") in length, but that includes the tail. I think this was a subadult. This was perhaps the size of a small squirrel?

Nice shot. Where was it taken? I have always found them to be very skittish.

Tidbinbilla sanctuary. They were reintroduced from Tasmania, where they survive thanks to the absence of foxes. I've seen northern brown bandicoots many times in northern NSW and southern Queensland. The most southerly Northern Brown Bandicoot I've seen was in the Watagans near Newcastle was, but that was a very long time ago. The Southern Brown Bandicoot has also been introduced into Mulligan's Flat reserve in the north of the ACT, another reserve protected by a predator-proof fence.

Thanks! I was really lucky to see one in sunlight. Like most Australian animals, they prefer to feed after dark.
