Brief description

Moderately sized animal, this is the smallest wallaby. It is characterized by the colour of its neck which is brown to red. The sub specie rufrogiseus rufrogiseus has been identified and characterized by the Doctor Bennett: sometimes, this small wallaby is called “Bennett’s Wallaby”. This wallaby is the most common and is often visible in the conservation parks as it is the case in “Le Château de Sauvage”. In most of the cases when you see kangaroos outside from Australia or Tasmania, it is the “Bennett’s wallaby”.

IUCN status is not on the “red list”, classified “. This Macropus is extremely prolific and there is no reason to assume that the population will decline in the coming years.

Hello Philippe,
Nice to see this family member of Kangaroo. It's a rare guest here in TN.Excellent details and exposure. Very nice exposure on white furs too. I like the way you placed this Wallaby. Good composition.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards,
Srikumar
