Protemnodon brehus is an extinct macropodin kangaroo that was first described by Sir Richard Owen in 1874. The species was widespread across southern Australia in the Pleistocene, becoming extinct around 40,000 years ago. It was a large, robust kangaroo, probably hopping considerably slower and less efficiently than the modern red and grey kangaroos.
