Kenny Travouillon

My name is Kenny, I am the curator of Mammalogy at the Western Australian Museum. I am also a Palaeontologist, studying fossil mammals from Australia. My research is mostly focused on marsupial evolution. I have named over 30 species of marsupials, fossil and modern, in the order Peramelemorphia (bandicoots and bilbies), Dasyuromorphia (marsupial carnivores), and Macropodiformes (kangaroos, wallabies, etc.).
