SOUTHERN BROWN BANDICOOT
"Living life in the fast lane"

This friendly, solitary marsupial omnivore has a backwards-facing pouch that prevents it being filled with dirt when digging for food.

Amazingly, they are weaned at 2 months, can breed at 3 months and after a short 12 day gestation period can produce up to 5 young per litter.

In 1859, wild English rabbits were released on a property near Victoria and were soon spreading across Australia at a speed of up to 100 kilometres per year in plague proportions.

By 1894, they crossed the Nullarbor Plain to the WA border and a decision was made to protect agriculture in the west.

Still in use today but mainly as an emu barrier.
