DESCRIPTION

Collect your choice of gallery quality Giclée, or fine art prints custom trimmed by hand in a variety of sizes with a white border for framing.

Potoroo = Indigenous name for small rat-kangaroo.

At first glance the long-nosed potoroo with its pointed nose and grey-brown fur looks very much like a bandicoot — that is until it hops away with its front feet tucked into its chest; revealing its close relationship with the kangaroo family. It is only a small marsupial with a body length between 340mm and 380mm, and a tail length up to 235mm.

As it is rarely seen in the wild, better indicators of its presence are the runways it makes through the undergrowth and the hollow diggings it leaves behind when feeding on underground roots and fungi.

Nice one Chris, they're such cuties!! Did you know the Gilbert's Potoroo is on the critically endangered list and all three species are threatened, mostly due to habitat loss and foxes!? So sad if we lose them:((
