Pademelon

Is it a wallaby? Is it a kangaroo? Well no it is in fact a little Red-legged Pademelon! Our pair of pademelons can often be seen cuddling. Too cute!

Pademelon

The Little Red-legged Pademelon is closely related to wallabies and kangaroos, and is one of the smallest of the macropod family. They are shy animals, often hard to spot hidden amongst the ground cover of the rainforest.

Here at WILD LIFE Sydney we have two pademelons - Rockmelon and Watermelon - who share their home with Princess the Cassowary. Our Pademelons are actually mother and daughter, with the younger one born right here in the Daintree Rainforest enclosure!

Pademelons are usually found alone, but they gather together when they are feeding, foraging on leaves, berries, grasses and fruit.

Watermelon and Rockmelon are very close and can often be witnessed cuddling and grooming each other just inches from the viewing area.
