below the tracks of a bandicoot most likely of the Northern Brown Bandicoot as skull and sighting have been of this species although the Long nosed Bandicoot is also listed in this areaBody sizes same different tail lengths and approx 500gram weight difference .
In the first pic you can see an almost perfect print of left rear foot almost as if it was taken on a ink pad and paper. the right foot deeper and angled from sinking/slipping in softer sand. Rear foot length =40mm straddle approx= 40mm

Some days several bandicoots can be seen at the Cranbourne Botanical gardens in Melbourne's South East, particularly around the stringybark picnic area. Best to be early I think. Several years back I was a parent helper on a school excursion there and it gave me a thrill to see the kids excited and keen to observe them.
