Red-legged Pademelon Photos

Thylogale stigmatica

I don't know much about all the different kinds of kangaroos, wallabies, and other marsupial critters in Australia. I admit before arriving I hadn't ever heard of a "Pademelon". However, this is one critter we saw a lot of, while staying at the Rainforest Canopy Treehouses near Tarzali. They were always around our treehouse, day and night, but were pretty shy. During the day one would occasionally come by, but would be hiding at the edge of the clearing. At night they were more brave, presumably cleaning up any fallen fruit or seeds from our feeding the birds and possums. 

Cute little critters! Although I think my wife called them "half kangaroo, half rat".  :-)
