The monjon (Petrogale burbidgei), also known as the warabi and Burbridge's rock weasel, is the smallest of the many species of rock-wallaby found in Australia. It is found in areas of the Kimberley region of Western Australia and also on some islands in the Bonaparte Archipelago.

The monjon was described in 1978, having long eluded discovery. This is largely because of its very timid nature, its small size of a length between 300 millimetres (12 in) and 350 millimetres (14 in) and average weight of 1.3 kilograms (3 lb) and its limited distribution. It is still very little-known.

The monjon is an olive-buff colour with a white stripe over its hip. The lower part of the nose is black and hairless, while the tip and upper part of the nose have very short hair. The tail is a light grey-brown with a dark brown to black brush on the tail's tip. The species is similar to the nabarlek except the monjon has no molars and has shorter ears and feet. The two species are not known to inhabit the same locations.

It is listed as near threatened, partly because of the small size of its known range.
