Description

a.k.a. Tasmanian Bettong. Saw 3, to my delight. Paler fur, smaller size, and more kangaroo-rat like proportions (ie much shorter arms and longer lankier legs) than pademelons or wallabies. Also has round ears, white belly (pademelons don't), and a noticeable black tail tip.

Description from Wikipedia

The Diprotodontia (/daɪˌproʊtɵˈdɒnʃ(i)ə/; Greek: διπρωτός diprotos, meaning "two front" and οδοντος odontos meaning "teeth") are a large order of about 120 marsupial mammals including the kangaroos, wallabies, possums, koala, wombats, and many others. Extinct diprotodonts include the rhinoceros-sized Diprotodon, and Thylacoleo, the so-called "marsupial lion".
