Bettongs, Potoroos, and the Musky Rat-kangarooeBook - 2007
The rat-kangaroo was one of the first Australian marsupials to be seen alive in Europe. These animals were called by the local Aboriginal people 'Pot-o-roo', and by the European settlers, 'Kangooroo rat'. Bettongs, Potoroos and the Musky Rat-kangaroo provides an extraordinary glimpse into the secretive lives of these unusual marsupials. It also reveals little-known facts about the critical functional role these creatures play in maintaining the forest and woodland habitats in which they live.
