Owls are a big threat to the Bandy-Bandy because they are much faster, hunt at the same time, much bigger, can see a long way and hears better this is all helpful because the Bandy-Bandy moves on the round over leaves which is quiet loud. When the Bandy-Bandy dig’s their hole, the sand flicks out and on to the sand that makes a loud noise. Humans hunt for Bandy-Bandy skin to make a head wrap called a turban. Bigger snakes in the desert feed on the Bandy-Bandy for life, so they don’t die of hunger.
Structural adaptations the Bandy-Bandy have are uncommon because the black and white stripes that wrap continually around the body confuses the eyes of prey and predators leaving them blind for a minute or two. The Bandy-Bandy is only 50-60cm long, which is useful but gives a disadvantage to the Bandy-Bandy. The bigger predators are obviously faster and they would have more energy to store which means they can go farther with out stopping when they found they prey. The Bandy-Bandy size is a helpful as well because the as I said before, the Bandy-Bandy digs holes, when they dig their holes they will be small not allowing bigger predators to enter the small hole.
The Bandy-Bandy behavioural adaptations such as digging holes to hide from predators and to live in throughout the day so they are protected from predators. It moves in different directions that plays a trick on the prey or predators eyes this is called flicker fusion. The Bandy-Bandy's white stripes glow in the dark giving them light to hunt for their prey or to see if predators are about to strike. They can go into a defence positions that warns the other animal don't come near them.
The Australian Bandy-Bandy lives in South Australia, underground.
