A sign of activity on Munibung Hill

Bandicoot diggings are often seen along the tracks on Munibung Hill. A nocturnal marsupial mammal, the bandicoot is omnivorous, meaning they forage during the night for small creatures such as insects, spiders, earthworms, and centipedes, and to round out their diet they eat roots, plant tubers and fungi. The bandicoot digs a cone-shaped hole using their front paws and reach their meal with their long snout.
