Bumper’ Bettong

You may remember a couple of months ago a little Rufous Bettong came into care after being noticed stuck in the grill of a rental car. Great news that after surgery to fix her badly broken arm and TLC from her carer, here she is being released (with a grumble of thanks of course) fully recovered back to where she belongs, wild and free.

‘The rufous rat-kangaroo, more commonly known as the rufous bettong, is a small marsupial species of the family Potoroidae found in Australia. It is not classified as threatened. The rufous bettong is about the size of a full-grown rabbit.’ Wikipedia
