Sad news at Warrawong with the passing of one of our hand raised Bandicoot joeys.
During a recent census at Warrawong, two Southern Brown Bandicoot joeys were found thrown from mum's pouch. The sisters were hand reared for a time, named Isa and Obel and became quite friendly.
Warrawongs' bandicoot sisters have definitely grown up! They have left their inside nursery and now live in a large enclosure which they have made their own. Their digging practice is being put to good use, with dozens of little cone shaped holes found every morning.
Warrawong Wildlife Sanctuary is excited to introduce the newest members of our daily animal shows, two Southern Brown Bandicoots joeys! We stumbled across the two sisters during a recent census; they had been thrown from mum’s pouch just a bit too early, and still required milk.
