Our original interpretation of the Eastern Barred Bandicoot is a favorite bush visitor here in Tassie as well as the south eastern states. We think we've captured their cute little snouts and striped bodies.
We manufacture these adorable little stands in a large and small size so they can be grouped in a family in a home or garden.
For large orders please allow 2 weeks for manufacturing and allow for a raw Corten steel look instead of rust. Orders may be rusted prior to shipping, please specify this upon order and allow additional time which can be specified upon order.
The Eastern Barred Bandicoot is a small, yellowish-brown nocturnal marsupial. As the names suggests, it has 3-4 pale bars across its hindquarters. The mainland subspecies of Eastern Barred Bandicoot, Perameles gunnii, is listed as extinct in the wild.
Eastern Barred Bandicoots rest in a shallow, grass lined nest during the day and come out to forage at night on a variety of invertebrates, such as worms, grubs and beetles. They are solitary animals and have a short gestation period, with young born after just 12 days of pregnancy.
Eastern Barred Bandicoots were once widespread across the grasslands and grassy woodlands of western Victoria, and Tasmania extending into the south-east corner of South Australia.
