Isoodon Macrourus

Peramelidae

Northern Brown Bandicoot

The Northern Brown Bandicoot has a head body length of up to 40 cm, a shorter tail up to 17 cm and can weigh up to 2.1 kg. Males are larger than females, often up to double the size. The fur is speckled brown-black above and whitish below. Their ears are short and rounded and they possess an elongated snout, despite being a 'short-nosed' bandicoot. Forelimbs are shorter than hindlimbs and are used when foraging to dig conical holes, which they explore with their snout.
