Long-nosed Bandicoot (Perameles nasuta)

Crash - Long-nosed Bandicoot
Crash is a Long-nosed Bandicoot brought to Taronga Zoo's Wildlife Hospital in October 2005 after being found by a member of the public. Crash's mother was found dead after being hit by a car in Warriewood on Sydney's Northern Beaches.

Crash was hand-reared by a dedicated veterinary nurse from the Taronga Wildlife Hospital which included countless milk feeds around-the-clock while the little Bandicoot was very young. Crash now lives at Taronga Zoo's Education Centre, meeting school students on excursion every week to help spread messages of conservation for his and other animal species whose populations are under threat.
