What's a dunnart?

My question when speaking with one of the students in the school I'm now in.

Apparently dunnarts are quite cute, marsupial mice, with the personality of a Tasmanian devil. She assured me that if they were larger there'd be no humans in Australia!

Dunnarts are endangered.
I hear that there's a study about to begin on bandicoots. They might be coming to my place to catch them. They've discovered a lot about bandicoots reproductive habits from the last lot which was studied for a student's PhD.
