Bennett’s Wallaby

Macropus rufogriseus

Kangaroos and wallabies are in the same family, with wallabies as the smaller of the two. Bennett’s wallaby, also called the red-necked wallaby, is generally solitary, though loose mobs may come together while foraging at night. During the day, the wallaby rests among dense patches of shrubs within the forest.
