Potoroo - Potoroidae


The potoroo,...

These are a very small kangaroo type marsupials, but they are very special. These little guys climb trees, very effectively and also hop about like other roos. In general, these little roos are critically endangered. Mainly due to the predation they encounter with foxes, cats, and wild dogs endemic to Australia. These are often confused with kanagroo rats, and rat-kangaroos. Overall, these little marsupials are fascinating.
