Swamp Wallaby (Black Wallaby)

Wallabia bicolor


At least I think this is a swamp wallaby! My camera at the time was not so hot, but the reddish-brown coloration by the ears leads me to believe I identified it correctly.


Swamps (of course) and thicker forests.


Found while hiking through Victoria.

Thanks so much for your comments, Lori and Argy! I hope to go to Tasmania and see some pademelons and other wallaby species someday :-)

That a pretty little wallaby. We only have Bennet's & pademelons here in Tasmania, so it's nice to see all the other species here on NOAH.
