German translation:Latin names
Explanation:
I was unable to locate German names. That said, however, with just one obvious exception, all the names originate in Aboriginal languages, which means you can use these words with the Latin in ( ).

Dibbler: Parantechinus apicalis

Chuditch: Dasyrus geoffroii (also known as western quoll; chuditch is Nygoongah language)

Shark bay mouse: pseudomys praeconis
(Shark bay may be a place name; if so, you could translate as per English with place name)

Walma snake: NO references found for this (but 'walma' means to grow, raise in Wagiman language). NEAREST I found was WOMA PYTHON (aspirities ramsayi)
