Agile wallaby

The white stripe near the hip is the identification mark for this species

Glen Fergus

Most traits identified in wallabies are shared by other terrestrial kangaroos, including large ears, a brownish body, a pouch for holding Joey, and a tail. The long tails add to their beauty and help maintain balance when hopping from one place to another. Crocodiles like hunting them; therefore, they are constantly cautious around water.
Moreover, they are vegetarian species with a variety of plant-based feeding options. It is not uncommon to come across a group of wallabies grazing together.

Pregnant females like to live in each other’s company and enjoy chatting. The newborns enter the pouch immediately after birth and spend months safeguarded by their adoring moms. They are readily threatened and could get wounded while attempting to flee.
