    I think that's a cappyberra (not sure of spelling). They are the largest rodents in the world and from south america.

this looks to me like a marsupial, red tree kangaroo to be exact.

What you have taken a photo of is "A Red Tree Kangaroo" Nice photo, he looks tired.

I think it is a wombat! Looks like one anyhow! Really cute, I would just crop the image a little at the bottom. The out of focus pole distracts the eye from the subject. Just my opinion...

Thanks for your responses and feedback. Yes, I agree, Marie-France - that is a good suggestion.

This critter is for sure a Red Tree Kangaroo, I am 100% sure of this because I have 6 years experience as a zoo keeper and have worked with many of these guys.
