It's not from New Guinea but they may be of the same subfamily.

I'll give you a little help, when grown it is 16-22 inches (40-55 centimeters) long from nose to tail.

Small, ugly, with a weird nose and venomous saliva. This is the Almiqui, also known as the Cuban Solenodon, an endangered species that lives underground.

oops, that wasn't my writing.... (no kidding)
Maybe should post the link Google Image Result for http://www.absoluterandom.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/11/almiqui-thumb.jpg

Well, after doing some reasearch apparently this creature and banicoots are not in the same family although I must say they do look similar.
