The tammar wallaby is a small marsupial mammal weighing up to 9 kg and standing 59–68 cm tall. Tammars have narrow, elongated heads with large pointed ears. Their tapered tails measure 33–45 cm in length. The tammar’s coat is dark gray to brown dorsally, reddish on the sides of the body and limbs and pale gray or tan ventrally. Tammars have strong hind legs and feet that are specialized for hopping, their primary means of locomotion.
