Southern Brown Banicoot
Some portraits of a different kind last week. A great little job for Murdoch University photographing Bandicoots at the South Street campus. Conservation staff and students were catching and measuring Quendas and I went along to document the process and hopefully get some good shots. Gorgeous little creatures, with most of them being females with babies in the pouch. A very impressive amount of bandicoots living on campus. It's one aspect of Murdoch that makes it a special university. Students have access to a diverse range of flora and fauna right on their doorstep.
The Quendas were all very nervous and quick as they had just been measured and tagged so getting a shot in the wild was a little difficult.
There are more photos are available here.
