Brand new paper out describing a new fossil species of Bandicoot from Australia, they've chosen the scientific name for the new species to be Crash bandicoot. Getting to name new species must be fun... This is also a great example of how much information palaeontologists can get from just small fragments of a skeleton, particularly from teeth

The paper itself is linked here and might be a bit technical, however I recently interviewed one of the authors Karen Black about her work at Riversleigh fossil site, and her colleague Robin Beck about marsupial evolution.
