Macropus eugenii (Tammar Wallaby)

Wikipedia Abstract

The tammar wallaby (Macropus eugenii) also known as the dama wallaby or darma wallaby, is a small macropod native to South and Western Australia. It may have been the first macropod to have been seen by a European. Though its range has been severely reduced since European colonisation, the tammar remains common within its reduced range and it is listed as of Least Concern by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).
