Bandicoots Facts

Bandicoot is a small animal that belongs to the group of marsupials. It looks like a rat, but it is actually more closely related to a rabbit.Bandicoots are nocturnal (active at night) animals. They will spend day hidden in dense vegetation, to avoid predators. Due to small size, bandicoots are easy prey for dingoes, foxes, snakes and wildcats. Bandicoots are omnivores (they eat both plants and animals). They usually look for insects, small rodents, eggs, fruit, nuts, seed and berries. When bandicoot detects underground prey, it digs a hole using its front paws and reaches its meal with long snout. These are vocal animals. They produce snuffing sound while they are looking for food and piglet-like grunting when the food is detected. Also, they produce high-pitched sounds when disturbed. Young bandicoots are ready for independent life when they reach age of four months. Bandicoots have short lifespan. If they manage to escape from the predators, bandicoots can survive up to three years.
