…from the birdwatching part of our trip. This taken in the rainforest at Mary Cairncross, north of Brisbane. The animal is a Red-legged Pademelon Thylogale stigmata. A marsupial a bit smaller than a wallaby.
When someone first said, Look out for the Pademelons,” I was confused as I heard it as “paddy melons” – which my mum and dad used to call a species of melon we grew on the farm, mostly as animal feed, although my mother made gorgeous jam from them too.
