The marsupials which most match this description are the Long-nosed bandicoot and Northern brown bandicoot. These creatures forage for plants roots and plant parts, and will often eat rotting food left on the ground. They are insectivorous, but have been known to prey on creatures larger than themselves, including birds, and other small mammals. They have large, round ears and elongated snouts. They are members of the order Dasyuromorpha which also includes the better-known Tasmanian Devil, Thylacine and quolls. These creatures are carnivorous, rarely eating plants, and their snouts are elongated but not very "long-nosed".
