There are a lot less red wallabies around than the eastern grey kangaroos and it was a real treat to spot one with her sweet little joey in her pouch.

The wallabies have a different body shape to the kangaroos, they are smaller, rounder (little bit like an overweight dog) and considerably shorter with wider ears, a much coarser looking coat and of course a very long tail. Because they are shorter than kangaroos the tails can be as long as the wallaby is tall as you can see in the photo above.
