The Long-nosed Bandicoot (Perameles nasuta) is a species of bandicoot found in Australia. It is the largest member of its genus, which also includes the Western Barred Bandicoot, the Eastern Barred Bandicoot and the Desert Bandicoot.[3]

The Long-nosed Bandicoot is much less colourful than its relatives, being primarily a brown colour. It is distributed along the eastern coast of Australia from Cairns in Queensland to Naringal in southwestern Victoria. It is a nocturnal, solitary predator of invertebrates and tubers.
