wallaby

P1080286

Compared with the preceding photo of a young kangaroo you can see how distinctly different the two species are. The young kangaroo may grown six feet tall (if its a male) but the wallaby is only half that and has a much more solid body as well as dark brown front feet and nose. This one is enjoying young grass stalks for dinner. The background with grasses,  young banksia tree in the front and she-oak in the back is indicative of the local flora of this coastal reserve.
