About the Long-Nosed Potoroo

Despite their small size, long-nosed potoroos are related to kangaroos! They are thought to be living fossils as they have remained unchanged for 10 million years. The further south in Australia the potoroo lives, the longer their nose tends to be.

Habitat and Distribution

Long-nosed potoroos are found in rainforests, woodlands and scrubby areas in Tasmania and eastern Australia.

Family Information

Long-nosed potoroos usually live on their own.
