Brief Summary

    Bettong: Brief Summary
    provided by wikipedia

    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 Woylie, Bettongia penicillata 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.
