SPECIES: Notamacropus parma — Parma Wallaby
Small and shy - at just 50cm in body length, the Parma Wallaby is the smallest of the wallabies. With a darker grey fluffy face, reddish grey-brown fur and pale grey underneath, the Parma Wallaby is found in the forests of northern New South Wales. Being nocturnal, they're not easily spotted, coming out of an evening to feed on grasses and small plants. So elusive, the Parma Wallaby has already experienced its own brush with extinction, presumed extinct until a rediscovery in the 1960s. Habitat loss and predation by foxes and feral cats threaten the future of this pint sized wallaby.
