Our wallaby group has grown!
We have recently welcomed six male red-necked wallabies from Woburn Safari Park to join our existing bachelor group!
A wallaby’s back legs are very muscular and the strong tail is used for balance when leaping, or as a prop when sitting. Their colouration provides excellent camouflage amongst woodland undergrowth, and their relatively dense fur is great for added insulation.
This species come from Tasmania and the South East coastal strip of Australia. Their diet here at the zoo consists of various fruit and veg, browse and hay, and they are also given special hard feed for macropods, which is an animal such as a wallaby or kangaroo who have pouches.
Our wallabies can be found at Familiar Friends in their walk-through enclosure, Wallaby Walkthrough.
