Red-Necked Wallaby

Wallabies are a marsupial/pouched mammal from Australia. No different to kangaroos in habits, just smaller which means they can live in habitats with dense plant cover.

Red-necked wallabies get their name from the red fur on their neck and shoulders. When born they are embryonic weighing less than a gram, and they must immediately drag themselves to their mothers teats which are enclosed in the pouch. There, it will stay for six months. 

DID YOU KNOW? There are about 50 different species of wallaby.
