Walk-around of the Science and Nature Animals of Australia (Large Replicas) 75462 Eastern Barred Bandicoot, Perameles gunnii Gray, 1838. Snout-vent length is approx. 80 mm and tail length is 27 mm so the scale is approx. 1:4. Major threats for the species are habitat loss (grassland being used for crop or as pasture for sheep) and predation by neozoons (cats, foxes) or competition with neozoons (rabbits). In mainland Australia it is almost extinct and there is a reintroduction programme with captive bred specimens taking place in Victoria. The Tasmanian population is more numerous but still IUCN considers the species' allover conservation status "Near Threatened".
