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!

They have re-introduced a number of marsupials in a fox and rabbit free area.

There were several of these animals in the garden at the hotel after dark. They were apparently always there and not considered vermin, as the hotel had a sign up saying not to be alarmed by them. But I've forgotten what they're called...
