whats this?

Post by Blue... » Sat Jun 13, 2009 11:26 pm

we were down on the shipwreck coast yesterday taking a few pictures of the formations down that way… one of the archways had collapsed a couple of days back… but on a return trip from one of the formations we came across this little fellow… anyone know what it is?

Too far away? Try the next pic ;)

He came right up to my boots… he seemed to be searching for food.. I don’t recall ever seeing on in real life… :)

Bandicoots would be more common I guess.
He still looks a bit like an antechinus.
Not sure about sizes though.
Antechinus tail looks to be a fraction longer.

So.. a tame bandicoot. hey :D
