The Parma wallaby is a small and elusive marsupial and is characterized by its grey-brown fur, rounded ears, and relatively short tail. Parma wallabies are herbivorous, feeding on a variety of grasses, leaves, and other vegetation.


They are primarily nocturnal, spending much of their time foraging during the night and resting during the day. Parma wallabies are also known for their solitary nature, usually only coming together to mate.
