The Parma Wallaby (Notamacropus parma) is a small, hopping, kangaroo-like mammal native to forests of southeastern Australia.

About the size of a stout cat, it lives in dense shrub and is only active at night to feed on grasses and small plants.

The White Throated Wallaby is the smallest of the wallabies (short, kangaroo-like animals of the genus Notamacropus) and carries its young in a pouch like other marsupials.

Shy and elusive, it was believed extinct until rediscovery in the 1960s. It is threatened by habitat loss and is easily killed by non-native foxes.

The White Throated Wallaby or Parma Wallaby is the smallest member of the genus Notamacropus, at between 7.1 and 12.8 lb., less than one-tenth the size of the red kangaroo.

It is about 1.6 ft. in length, with a sparsely furred, blackish tail about the same length.

The fur is a reddish or greyish brown above, greyer about the head, and fading to pale grey underneath.

Individuals had been sighted many times during the years when it was “extinct”, but mistaken for an especially slender and long-tailed example of the otherwise similar red-legged and red-necked pademelons.

The Parma wallaby inhabits wet sclerophyll (hard-leaved) forests of northern New South Wales, Australia.

It prefers forest with thick undergrowth, and grassy patches, although Parma wallabies are also found occasionally in dry eucalypt forest and even rainforest.

The White Throated Wallaby or Parma Wallaby is mainly nocturnal and usually shelters in thick scrub during the day, through which it can travel at speed along the runways it makes.

It emerges from cover shortly before dusk to feed on grasses and herbs in forest clearings.

The Parma wallaby is largely solitary, with two or at most three animals sometimes coming together to feed in favorable circumstances.

Most social interactions occur at sunrise, when their activity peaks. These animals are bipeds and they move with a hopping type of gait, with their tail acting as a counterbalance.

When resting they will often sit “tripod style,” being balanced on their hind legs and tail. They communicate visually, with tail wagging, quivering, and foot stomping to signal aggression.

They will also communicate with their mates by clucking, or coughing, with hissing as another sign of aggression.

These wallabies are polygynandrous, two or more males mating with two or more female wallabies.

They breed between the months of March and July, and produce one offspring each breeding season. Gestation is for about 35 days.

The newborn remains in its mother’s pouch. After 30 weeks it is ready to leave the pouch, but continues to nurse until 10 months, when the joey becomes completely independent of its mother.

Since the parma wallaby is a solitary creature, the only interactions between adult males and females are when they mate.

Males take no part in caring for young. A female reaches sexual maturity at about 16 months, and males between 20-24 months.
