Mammals

Overview

The forests, woodlands and grasslands of the Wodonga region support a diversity of native and introduced mammals, including arboreal marsupials, relatively large grazing marsupials, smaller ground-dwelling mammals, and bats. Some of these mammals can be found in the bushlands and grasslands within the urban fabric of Wodonga, and some native species, such as the Common Brushtail Possum, have made our backyards their home as well.

Arboreal (i.e. tree-dwelling) marsupials include the Possums, Pygmy-possums, Gliders, Phascogales and Koala. The larger grazers include the Common (or Bare-nosed) Wombat and four local species of Macropod (the Eastern Grey Kangaroo, Wallaroo, Red-necked Wallaby and Swamp Wallaby). 

Smaller ground-dwelling mammals include the two monotremes (Echidna and Platypus), the carnivorous Dasyurids (Quolls, Antechinus and Dunnarts) and native rodents (Bush Rat, Water Rat and Broad-toothed Rat). 

Within the Natyremapr network we are constantly surprised at the high quality of photos submitted, many are of publication standard. We look forward to seeing many more! Please keep in mind that rodents in particular can be difficult to tell apart in photos, and so clear close-up photos that include the head, body and tail are most useful. Small bats are also difficult to identify and clear photos of the face and tail are important (note that it’s best not to handle small bats, to avoid injury to them and yourself).
