|Tasmanian Pademelon Thylogale billardierii|
|Cradle Mountain, Tasmania, Australia
The Tasmanian Pademelon is now restricted to Tasmania though it used to exist on the mainland. Pademelons are smallish marsupials (about knee height) that are found in the forest where they feed on grass and leaves. They are active at dusk and at night while they rest in the forest during the day.
