Carnivorous marsupials are a group of native mammals ranging from the small planigales, dunnarts & antechinus through to the larger phascogales, quolls and Tasmanian Devil. The small species are entirely insectivorous, with some of the large species taking vertebrate prey and carrion. Bandicoots & Bilbies are another group of native marsupials which have a more omnivorous diet, consisting of insects, invertebrates, fungi, bulbs, seed & some plant material. In captivity Wombaroo Small Carnivore Food can be used to supplement the insect component in the diet of both Carnivorous Marsupials and Bandicoots.
Being marsupials, all these species are born undeveloped and reside in the mother’s pouch, before emerging and weaning on to solid food. Due to the rapid growth rate of these species they require a high protein, high fat milk which is best replicated by using Kangaroo Milk Replacer >0.7.
