Medium-sized, semi-nocturnal marsupial mammal. Large hind legs used for jumping and kicking, tail used for support and balance.
To help protect our environment:
Forest, scrub, pasture, plantations, edge habitats.
Selectively browses on native forest seedlings, destroys forest understorey and damages newly planted pine plantation. Competes with livestock for pasture, resulting in large production losses in the sheep and beef industry.
