I bet you need a permit to keep most of them as pets.

My wife wants a wombat and a capybara.

Oh yeah, I want a leprosy carrier as a companion.  And a red neck wallaby?  Does it use chewing tobacco, mate with its relatives, and answer to Cletus?

Seriously, these animals are either nocturnal, solitary, or require lots of space.  My primary consideration for a companion, human or otherwise, is compatibility.  I'm not looking for someone that is seriously high maintenance, that's why cats and dogs are the leading contenders for companions in my world.  Feed em, love em, and they give it right back.  You want high maintenance with little to no reciprocity, marry an idjit.

That list looks oddly specific to Australia and it's neighbors. Sika deer? Ya wanna bet that will be the next popular support animal being hauled onto a commercial flight by a Patcholie reeking Prarie Princess, who is going to the international Chakra Healing Expo over in Area 51.

I found out when I visited Busch Gardens that I'm allergic to kangaroos and wallabies. How the hell can I have an allergy to an animal native to a land literally on the other side of the planet?

Nah, that's the Tammar wallaby

This small wallaby likes to socialize, feed, and mate in groups.

They are absolutely mammals.  They are just not placental mammals. They are marsupial mammals.  There is a third type called monotremes. Here's a brief primer:

Having RTFA, it is a list of non-domesticated mammals that make acceptable pets. However, most of those are not what I would have chosen.  I would not classify sugar gliders, chinchillas, or hedgehogs as domesticated, and yet they are all better pets than anything on this list.

That's a misquote.  It was actually "Cats completely domesticated humans.  Right."
