Road-kill. I wasn't exactly sure what this was. I cant spot the tail and didn't want to poke it! The only think I can think of with the size and body shape is a bandicoot - but the nose might be too short?. It was about 25-30cms long.

Yes there is one in there but couldnt get a shot of it! Also known as a Quenda which is a better name than Bandicoot - which means something like pig footed rat!

Description from Wikipedia

The order Peramelemorphia includes the bandicoots and bilbies: it equates approximately to the mainstream of marsupial omnivores. All members of the order are endemic to the twin land masses of Australia-New Guinea and most have the characteristic bandicoot shape: a plump, arch-backed body with a long, delicately tapering snout, very large upright ears, relatively long, thin legs, and a thin tail.
