Bandicoot's are nocturnal and often have incidents with roaming cats at night, as a result we end up with them in care with punctures and torn skin. Cat bites become infected fast and must be treated straight away. You can do your part by keeping any cats contained at night to eliminate some risk. They are also commonly hit by cars. Bandicoot's do carry babies in their pouches so next time you see one on the side of the road please take the time to check if there are any babies on board.
