Description

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.

Description from Wikipedia

Peramelidae is the family of marsupials that contains all of the extant bandicoots. One known extinct species of bandicoot, the Pig-footed bandicoot, was so different than the other species that it was recently moved into its own family. There are four described fossil Peramelids. They are found throughout Australia and New Guinea, with at least some species living in every available habitat, from rain forest to desert.

No range data available.
