As well as large Antilopine Kangaroos (Macropus antilopinus), the surrounding rock country was home to the Black Wallaroo (Macropus bernadus), the Short-eared Rock Wallaby (Petrogale brachyotis), and the Nabarlek (Peradorcus concinna).
Antilopine Kangaroos (Macropus antilopinus) are the largest macropods in the Top End of the Northern Territory.
Some morrdjdjanjno with subject matter relating to Antilopine Kangaroos were sung with clapstick and didjeridu accompaniment though it seems that didjeridu accompanied morrdjdjanjno are now no longer performed, the last singer (81 year-old Bardayal Nadjamerrek) now singing them without the didjeridu accompaniment.
These include, as already mentioned, the Antilopine Kangaroo, the Black Wallaroo and the two small rock wallabies, the Short-Eared Rock Wallaby and the Nabarlek, the latter two for the purposes of morrdjdjanjno song subjects being grouped together.
Tropical species, such as the golden bandicoot, the golden backed tree-rat and the antilopine
kangaroo, could be pushed into the cattle-degraded southern tropical zone.
