Tasmanian Pademelon

Cradle Valley, Tasmania, Australia

Tasmanian Pademelons used to be found on the mainland of Australia before those nasty foxes ate them all there. They are only
Tasmanian Pademelons by default. If foxes become established in Tasmania they will become extinct Pademelons.

Pademelons should not be confused with Paddy melons, which are a poisonous fruit which grows in arid Australia and of which
Pink cockatoos are inordinately fond. It is foxes, wedge-tailed eagles and Spotted-tailed quolls which are inordinately fond of Pademelons.
