DistributionRead full entry
Predation and habitat destruction in the early 1900s have restricted Tasmanian bettongs, Bettongia gaimardi cuniculus, to their current range, which includes most of the eastern half of Tasmania. Bettongia gaimardi inhabits arid regions, semi-arid regions, and sclerophyll forests of Tasmania and formerly parts of southern Australia. Eastern bettongs, B. g. gaimardi, were once found on mainland Australia in southern New South Wales and Victoria along the coast but are now extinct.
