Chaeropus, known as the pig-footed bandicoots, is a genus of small mammals that became extinct during the twentieth century. The species were unique marsupials, of the order Peramelemorphia, that had unusually thin legs yet were able to move rapidly. There are two recognised species of these marsupials, which inhabited dense vegetation on the arid and semi-arid plains of Australia.
