Range Description

The Pig-footed Bandicoot occurred in Australia. It was recorded from Western Australia, through South Australia and the southern part of the Northern Territory, to south-western New South Wales and western Victoria. The last known specimen was collected in 1901. Reports of sightings in central Australia during the 1920s were unconfirmed. There were recollections of this species by the Pintupi people in the Great Sandy and northern Gibson Deserts into the 1950s (Burbidge et al. 1988).
