Sportsman Creek wildlife refuge has a small resident population of  this carnivorous marsupial. Nocturnal feeders on insects and earthworms. They are secretive, solitary animals and males and females are rarely in contact, except for reproductive purposes. They have a long and pointed muzzle which produces distinctive deep, pointed diggings. They build  individual, simple nest under grasses. Both resident species of Bandicoot across the wildlife refuge fall prey to feral dogs and sometimes Dingo.
