The dusky pademelon is a marsupial found on the islands around Indonesia and on New Guinea. It’s kind of like a “miniature kangaroo.” Pademelons are born just the size of a jelly bean, said the zoo. When the baby reaches adulthood, it’ll be just under two feet tall.
The pademelon population has declined 30% in the last twenty years, mostly because of hunting. The species is considered “Vulnerable” by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.
