A list of my favorite images of bettongs.


The bettongs are species of the genus Bettongia, sometimes referred to as rat-kangaroos.

Four extant species are recognised:

*Eastern bettong (Bettongia gaimardi), also known as the Tasmanian bettong
*Boodie (Bettongia lesueur), also known as the Burrowing bettong
*Woylie (Bettongia penicillata), also known as the Brush-tailed bettong
*Northern bettong (Bettongia tropica)

In addition, at least two extinct species are known:

*Bettongia moyesi (Middle Miocene bettong), from Riversleigh
*Nullarbor dwarf bettong (Bettongia pusilla), known only from the fossil record

The rufous rat-kangaroo (Aepyprymnus rufescens) is sometimes referred to as a bettong (rufous bettong) but this is not strictly correct.
