Tasmanian Pademelon also known as the Rufous-bellied Pademelon or Red-bellied Pademelon, it's the only endemic pademelon to Tasmania. It's like a small kangaroo or wallaby - and they're very cute, kinda chunky and chubby.
This one is wild, but feeding in a garden at dusk, on the Tasman Peninsula. I've had them "pad" up to me in the dark and giving me a curious look before bouncing off again
