long-nose bandicoot at Macleay Museum

I love going to the old world Macleay Museum at the University of Sydney as their collection covers many interesting areas about history and stuff through the stuffed. I often go specifically to view their bird specimens for my art practice and recently spotted the above critter, a long-nosed bandicoot (in the centre).  I do recommend a visit and amongst the permanent displays is their next curated exhibition called Coral: Art Science Life
