Long-nosed Bandicoots are small secretive creatures with light grey fur, creamy white bellies, long white feet, large ears and a long pointy nose.

Nocturnal and shy, the Long-nosed Bandicoot is often known only by the conical shaped holes it makes on lawns when foraging, or by the excited high-pitched squeeks it lets out while doing so!
